• A Albert, aj.albert@ntlworld.com
•
My year five girls are desperate for the answer and frustrated that we don't know where to start. 22nd June.
• Transum,
•
• The last sequence is the sequence of answers! Look at the answers you already have for the first four sequences (see below). Sorry Year 5 girls, a bit of a tough one that!
• Inga Moreno, SBA
•
• Would be great if you provided with answers, just saves time. I teach nearly every lesson, so would appriciate time saving. [Transum: "Scroll down the page to find the answers to the Starter of the Day"]
• Ms. Flynn, St. Paul's, Brighton UK
•
• Wow! Number 3 was tricky but kept my most able (and the maths TA) intrigued for ages. Great selection of sequences for my, very mixed-ability, year 6 class.
• Mr Kavanagh's Fifth Class, C
•
• We really enjoyed this one, Emma was the only one (including the teacher) that figured out the fifth sequence.
• Mr Bob, Tutor Classes
•
• This is an interesting puzzle. My class was able to work it out easily although the last few were tricky.
• Miss Rose And Rabbit Class, Doha, Qatar
•
• Rabbit class from Doha, Qatar enjoyed figuring these out and found out that we can have patterns with both letters and numbers.
We found sequence 5 the hardest!
