    • Solve the problem
  • You can work in groups of up to 2! :) your solution needs to be written up with a full explanation
  • Break the problem into smaller pieces 1 Flowerbed has 6 slabs Draw the diagrams for 3 and 4 flowerbeds 2 Flowerbeds have 10 slabs
  • Tabulate results 14 18 Flowerbeds Slabs 1 6 2 10 3 4
  • Look for patterns… 14 18 +4 +4 +4 … and why they occur Flowerbeds Slabs 1 6 2 10 3 4
  • … and why they occur 6 +4 +4 +4 + 3 lots of 4
  • Find a formula Flowerbeds Working out Slabs 1 6 + 0x4 6 2 6 + 1x4 10 3 6 + 2x4 14 4 6 + 3x4 18
  • 6 + 4x4 6 + 9x4 6 + (n-1)x4 22 42 6+4(n-1) Flowerbeds Working out Slabs 1 6 + 0x4 6 2 6 + 1x4 10 3 6 + 2x4 14 5 10 n
