************************************ MathMagic Cycle 9: Level K-3 Regular ************************************ Triomino Challenge: Find what number goes inside the last triangle below. (Replace the ?) Directions: Use the numbers on the corners of the triominos to find out how to come up with the number in the middle. You may add and subtract only. Hint: All the figures follow the same pattern 5 7 4 9 / \ / \ / \ / \ / 4 \ / 3 \ / 5 \ / ? \ 2-----3 5-----9 7-----6 3-----5 *Extra Challenge* Create a triomino for your NTP friends using the same top numbers only (5,7,5,9) - Change the rules a little ************************************* MathMagic Cycle 9: Level K-3 Advanced ************************************* Pets with strange tastes ------------------------ Three girls, Ashley, Kari and Leah, lost their pets in the woods. The pets like canned peaches, candy apples and cooked carrots. The pets they are looking for are a cat, an opossum and a rabbit. The only way they can get them back, since the forest is enchanted, is by MathMagic teams figuring out all possible combinations, using one magic sentence at a time. Lots of work, but see if you can help the girls. First magic sentence: Leah's pet does not like cooked carrots (How many possible outcomes?) Second magic sentence: The cat does not belong to Kari (How many outcomes?) Third magic sentence: The opossum does not eat canned peaches (Outcomes?) *Extra Challenge* Working with your NTP friends can you give only two magic sentences and get all the information? ================== Good luck
