Introduction

Planning What is your task about? What do you have to do? My task is to take a number grid, draw a square around four numbers, and work out the product of the top left corner and bottom right corner. I am to do the same for the top right and bottom left corner. I must then work out the formula for my calculations so it can apply to any four numbers in a square on that size grid. Have you got any questions you would like to add to the original tasks? After each section of results I will do an Analysis of my results to look for any kind of relationship forming. What will you do first? To begin with I will plan my results table and then begin work on my task analysis. What information or data will you need to collect in order to complete the task? The information I need to collect is the product of the top right and bottom left numbers in a two-by-two square on a ten-by-ten number grid. I will also need to find the product of the top right and bottom left numbers. I will then use these numbers to calculate an nth term. How much information do you think you will need to collect? I will need to take 3, 4 or 5 readings (depending on grid size) ...read more.

On a 5x5 grid with a 3x3 square, the difference will be 4x5. ...read more.

  1. GCSE Maths Sequences Coursework

    I have noticed that each shape is made up off sections, these sections are similar to the shapes that I got when I was investigating squares at the very start of the growing shapes investigation. For example stage 1 in the cube sequence is made up off two "start shapes" and stage 1 in the square sequence.

    I will conduct this research using another 2 of these boxes from the overall cardinal10x10 number grid. My predication also seems to be true in the cases of the previous 2 number boxes. Although it is quite certain that this trend would be observed in all number boxes of this

  2. Algebra Investigation - Grid Square and Cube Relationships

    4 x 4 Grid Prediction I believe that this difference of 90 should be expected to remain constant for all 4x4 number boxes. I will now investigate to check if all examples of 4x4 grid boxes demonstrate this trend in difference.

  1. Investigate the relationships between the numbers in the crosses.

    - (top left x bottom right) = 40 * This rule states that if the top right number is multiplied by the bottom left number, subtract the top left number multiplied by the bottom right number it always gives 40.

  2. I am doing an investigation to look at borders made up after a square ...

    Then I will see if the answer is 12. In this case it isn't so I will have to add 8 to get to 12. So my rule is 4B+8. Using this rule I predict that the number of numbered squares in the 6thborder is 32. 6*4+8=32 6th Border 6 6 6 6 6 6 5 5 5 5
