Weekly Challenge

2 Colours, 1 Sequence

Sequences and patterns are a large part of what maths is really about. Here we are using 2 colours to generate a sequence. If we combine this with some of the ideas we used in last week’s challenge based on Prime Colours, we can explore number sequences as well.

We’ll be running FREE summer 5-day challenges over summer. These are designed to keep you thinking about mathematical ideas and promote conversation. Each challenge will involve tiny tasks to do with a key idea in maths. Complete at least 3 of the challenges over summer to earn a certificate. Find out more at Free 5-day summer challenges.
