Activities: Amazing Additions

MAZE 1: Can you make it through the maze and help the squirrel get to the nut?  The rule is to add 2 to the number each time, and when you add 2 to a number, you move to the next one and colour them in as you go.  The first ones are done for you, so you can see how it works!

MAZE 2: Can you make it through the maze and help the turtle get to her starfish buddy?  The rule this time is to add 3 to each number then move to the next number and colour them in as you go.  The first ones are done for you, so you can see how it works!

Make and Do: Functions Machine

As Múinteoir Ray said in today's lesson, you can make your very own Functions Machine.

All you need is a shoe box and you can design it how you want, as long as one side is marked IN (with a gap for putting items into) and one side is marked OUT (with a gap for items to come out). Remember: INPUT –> RULE –> OUTPUT.

Here's a simple one we made at home:

Why not try out your Functions Machine on someone else as well?  Don't write the rule on the front and see if they can GUESS YOUR RULE!
