Problem Solving in Maths

In 3F we have been looking at problem solving in Maths.

Today our problem was:

Is it always, sometimes or never true that if you add three odd numbers the answer will be an even number?

We decided as a class that the best way to solve this problem would be to investigate this. So we added three different odd numbers together and investigated whether or not the answer was odd or even.

Here are some of our findings-

55+7+71= 133 – ODD

39+5+1= 45 – ODD

Can you continue the investigation to see if you can find out the solution to the problem?

Will your findings be the same as 3F’s?
