Maths Fun

Here’s the problem. The farmer was counting as the animals went through the gate but then he realised that he’d been counting the legs of the animals. He’d counted 6 legs so the preps set about predicting the different combinations of animals which may have gone through the gate. We guessed that he could have had sheep, cows, horses, pigs, ducks, geese and chickens living on his farm. Have a look at the different combinations we came up with using our unifix blocks to model the problem. It was lots of fun and we had many different options/solutions.
