Maths Warm-Ups this week

This week, students engaged in a mathematics warm-up called target number. The game aimed to use (Ace to 9) to represent numbers one to 9. Students shuffle the cards. The dealer turns over 3 cards to form a 3-digit number, which becomes the target number. The dealer deals 6 cards to each player, face up. Players must arrange their cards to form two 3-digit numbers, or a combination of 3-, 2- and 1-digit numbers, which they can add or subtract to hit the target. We saw lots of creative use of the digits with many groups scoring a direct hit on their number.
