What is the rule (or function) that gives the outputs corresponding to the inputs shown in the diagram mapping 1 to 8 and 3 to 24 etc?

The Function Game is played in silence. Learners have to guess the function in the teacher’s mind. The teacher tells the learners that she wants […]

The input to Function Machine 1 is x. Write down an expression for the output.

If the output is 7 what was the input?

In Function 2, a is constant. If the input is 4 what is the output?

The functions from Function Machines 1 & 2 are combined to give Function […]

(1) You are blindfolded. The audience tells you the number in Box B and you can immediately say the numbers in box C and box A.

How is this trick done?

Can you make the trick more impressive?

You can change the x 6 and + 5 to other operations and numbers […]
