Maths Solving Problem pictures

Our problem solving in maths is great fun.

We started with a picture and a question. How many oranges are there? Can you reply on the blog and let me know?

I have had some replies but I will keep them hidden so you can have a go.

Some groups made models and then took them apart to count.

Other groups worked using whiteboards

One group found the total and then looked for the pattern and could then answer how many oranges in 10 layers!
