I have colored numbers inside the grid so it looks like a letter T.

I have also done this on a 9 by 10 grid and a 10 by 10 grid.


To investigate how the T number moves across

And down effects the T total.

In this investigation I had to find out how the T number moves across and down, effects the T total. I used grid sizes of 8 by 10, 9 by 10 and 10 by 10.

The T number is the number at the bottom of the T.

I found out that going across the grid once, and adding 5 to the last t-total gives you the next t–total.

Then I found out that going down the grid once, and adding 40 to the last t–total gives you the next t–total.

If you multiply the difference going across by the gridsize you get the difference going down.

5 * 8 = 40

Conclusion

Multiples

I drew a 10*10 grid going up in the three times table. I took a T out of the grid and then done the algebra for it. Here are my results:-

T – Number

T – Total

Algebra

        =

In this T is equal to 75 so 75 – 45 is equal to T – 30.

Then I did the equation using G for the grid size.

        =        =

In my equation I used G for the gridsize so T-30 is equal to T-3g because G is equal to 10 and 10 is the gridsize.

Then I put M into the algebra. M meaning multiple. I am using a multiple of 3 because that is what the grid was going up in.

        =        =

=

I looked at both equations for the grids going up in 2’s & 3’sand found out a pattern. The pattern is that on the multiple equations it is the same for both of them apart from the number at the end. On the 2 equation it is + 2 & - 2 and on the 3 equation it is + 3 & - 3.

The equation here is 5T because I added all the T’s and then I got 7MG because I added up MG + 2MG + 2MG + 2MG. Therefore the equation is 5T – 7MG.

    generalizations bar; When a T-Shape is rotated by 90, 180 or 270 degrees, its T-Total is larger. If we try the same rotations on a different grid width and plot the results in a table, patterns might become easier to see.

  1. T totals - translations and rotations

    My T-total is 17+10+3+2+4= 36. The number in my T-shape directly above my T-number is 7 places back on my grid so it is represented as N-7. The number directly above this is also 7 places back on my grid so it is represented as N-7-7= N-14.
