Courses are taught by an international team of mathematics education experts. Residential courses for subject leader training are followed by 3 or 6 […]
Suppose you have two 1’s, two 2’s, and two 3’s.
Make ‘sandwiches’ with the 1’s, 2’s and 3’s as slices of bread by arranging these six digits in a list so:

This is a game for 2 players. You should have 16 objects.
Arrange the objects in 4 rows with 7 on the bottom row, then a row of 5, then 3, then 1 at the top.

To win, be the first to pick 3 numbers that […]
