Logical Number Reasoning Activity

This activity combines computing and maths to look at algorithms. Children are challenged to solve missing number problems in number sequences, using logical reasoning. Additional challenges are then presented, and children are asked to share not just the answer, but the approach they took to solving the problem and finding the correct algorithm. Extension activities include asking children to come up with their own sequence algorithms, and to 'crack' more complex two-stage sequences with increasing differences. Simple advice for differentiating the activity is provided.
