#### Square & Cube numbers - multilink investigation

Introduce students to square and cube numbers, and use a multilink investigation to guide them through the conceptual learning of what they really mean. Students then use their understanding of square and cube numbers to apply to other powers with the extension worksheet. I used this with a middle ability Y9 group, and a bottom set Y11.

#### Factors of 36 Run Around Game Activity Whole Class Game Maths Mastery Magenta Principles

This is a great activity which I've used many times and always goes down well. It is the top two resources "Movement Game"
You put 36 A4 posters around the room with the numbers 1 to 36 on them (laminated). Then the cards with the factors on are laminated and cut out. You then have a big stack of number cards which are all the factors of all the numbers up to 36. Share the cards out around your players. Give them some blue tack each and then they run around the room trying to get rid of their cards.
For example: if they have a number one they can put it on any A4 number card.
if they have a number two they can put it on any A4 number card which is a multiple of two .e.g. 2, 4, 6, etc.
Obviously the number 36 appears only once so can only go in one place, numbers like 13 can go in a couple of places (13 and 26) so there are only two of them. However there are 36 ones and 18 twos. You need to ensure that they only put one of each number on each card. E.g. number six will need 1,2,3,6 but nothing else and no repeats.
This provides a lot of fun. How the class act on this depends on how good your behaviour management is and how engaged they are to complete it successfully...You always get some joker who just slaps down their cards onto the first A4 they can. Suggestions are use some key students to become Quality Control experts or something like that.
I've include some answers and some matching worksheets to back it all up. There is a lot of them but they all help reinforce the ideas . The BLOCKS worksheet is the one which I use the most!
Maths Mastery says that they should be explain their choices and answer questions like "Why is 7 only on these cards?" Etc
Hope you like it - I've used this loads of times as a starter, plenary or as the main of a lesson depending on the nature of the learners and where we are on the scheme.
