Wednesday Math Problems – do you have any to solve?

numbersHere are some different ways to think about numbers and amounts.  Try these and make sone of your own.  If you post them in a comment then we’ll all have lots more fun with math.

How many different 3-digit numbers can you make using the digits 1, 6, and 9?  Order the numbers.  What is the difference between the smallest and largest number?

I added the three-digit numbers and got a correct answer of 748.  What might the two numbers be?

Choose one of these numbers: 2, 3, 5, or 6.  Double the number you choose and then double the sum.  Keep doubling until you get a sum that is greater than 1,000.  How close to 1,000 is the number you reached?


Have fun with math – problems to solve are everywhere.

  1. This is actually jackson’s mom – but I needed to write in and say I LOVE what you are posting all summer long. Awesome stuff. I am going to have Jackson check it out as well and have him leave some comments about what he likes to do best.

    Mrs. Eaves – You ROCK!

    • Thanks for letting us know you looked. I hope others have found something on our site too. I know I’ve learned about by sticking with it and I am looking forward to doing more – I guess that would mean I’m metamorphic 🙂
