One Torch Tunnel

One Torch Tunnel

Solve the problem of getting four people through a tunnel with one torch in the minimum amount of time. The solution is not obvious but when you get it you see the elegance and beauty of its cunning.

This game is intended to provide a little bit of fun with a loose mathematical connection. There is of course mathematics involved in knowing the angle and stretch required to get the cat to the correct shelf. There is also mathematics involved in following the instructions about the number sequences.

The sequences appear here for those who have a Transum Subscription.

"I would like to thank you for the excellent resources which I used every day. My students would often turn up early to tackle the starter of the day as there were stamps for the first 5 finishers. We also had a lot of fun with the fun maths. All in all your resources provoked discussion and the students had a lot of fun."
