VIEW & DO Maths Investigations: 1
Two characters, Ann and Paul have realistic (but entertaining) problems to be solved. Working mathematically in real-life scenarios. For example, when the fox attacks the chickens, fencing is required. How can Paul make the fence with existing fence panels and minimum expense at the same time as providing suitable pens for his chickens?
