TaskIn this task, we’d like you to think about how numbers can be grouped in many different ways. We’ll use Padlet, a virtual pinboard, as a way for you to share how you’ve grouped your numbers should you wish. Guidance for using Padlet.
- Get 10 pieces of paper or sticky notes.
- On each piece of paper write a positive whole number. These can be any positive whole number, not necessarily in any order.
- Look at the numbers and group the numbers in some way, so that all numbers in a group have the same property.
- Label these groups up and then, if you wish, take a photo of your groupings to share on the Number Groups Padlet.
ShareHow did you group your numbers? Did you have an unusual group, an interesting group or a group no one else will have thought of?Put your photos on the Padlet and post your comments below.
