Mathematical Challenge Week Two

29 October 2015

This week we have a Mathematical problem chosen by Mr Manoharan. In the Mathematics Department at BISS Puxi, we are always finding ways to challenge our learners.

  • Maths Challenge Week Two

We constantly try to seamlessly incorporate elements of deeper learning into our teaching and create opportunities for our learners to apply key concepts to more demanding problems. Crucially, we want our learners to develop a range of problem solving skills at a range of levels and teacher support.

The question above takes the straightforward skill of working out areas, combines it with ratio and then flavours it all with a bit of algebraic manipulation. Have a go at this problem and see what you make of it; and remember it is okay to play around with the mathematics and fail a few times.

Please submit your solutions to Mr Manoharan here.

Martin Brown, Head of Mathematics
