Lemon Law

Lemon Law

A fascinating digit changing challenge. Change the numbers on the apples so that the number on the lemon is the given total. Can you figure out, by understanding place value, how this works?

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.

Comment recorded on the 19 October 'Starter of the Day' page by E Pollard, Huddersfield:

"I used this with my bottom set in year 9. To engage them I used their name and favorite football team (or pop group) instead of the school name. For homework, I asked each student to find a definition for the key words they had been given (once they had fun trying to guess the answer) and they presented their findings to the rest of the class the following day. They felt really special because the key words came from their own personal information."
