Christmas 2015

Plus 2015 Advent

Plus Advent 2015

So, time to relax and what better way to relax than with a puzzle or two?!

On Nrich you’ll find a collection of advent calendars a Sudoku for each day perhaps? (Solutions are supplied if you want them). Or a tangram? Maybe you want to play a game? (Clearly the year doesn’t matter for an Advent Calendar!)

Plus Magazine also have an Advent Calendar which this year has puzzles and articles designed with your creativity in mind.

For many more games and puzzles, see this collection including a challenging logic puzzle from Coolmath Games – can you set the circuits to light up that Christmas tree?!  If any of you have any little relatives they might enjoy Top Marks’ collection of their favourite Christmas Activities.

Perhaps you could make your Mathematical friends some cards! Why not put a Desmos tree on theDesmos Christmas tree cover?! Note this is simply a collection of lines and circles, as you can see from the syntax it is very easy to restrict x or y values. (For more on getting creative with Desmos, see Graph Art).

Staying with the subject of cards you can practise your coding skills with this Scratch project.
