We had a challenge this afternoon. We had to work out how much each Olympic Athlete was ‘worth’. I told the class that each letter in an athlete’s name was worth a value: for example A = £1, B = £2, C = £3.
I gave the children a list of famous Olympic athletes and told them to find out who was most expensive and who was cheapest!
They decided how to work the problem out themselves.
Check out the answers that they blogged in the comments section:
