Maths Mystery 2!


So many of you said you enjoyed last week's maths mystery so we thought we would finish the term with another one! Again, it is up to you how long you spend completing the mystery. There are 5 clues to solve so that is one clue/activity per day of the week. If you are eager though you can complete 2 or 3 activities in a day.


You will still need to complete your Big Maths tests and spend some time practicing your maths skills on either J2Blast (by logging in on HWB at choosing J2E) or SUMDOG. You should still have your login details from the competition the other week.
