Maths Appeal Puzzle Solving Video #7 – ‘Distance Time’ Puzzle Solution

The Maths Appeal Puzzle Solving YouTube video series with  me and the brilliant Bobby Seagull aims to improve the mathematical resilience in children and adults by showing that doing maths puzzles can be fun. Our 10-15 minute videos are designed to support students, parents and teachers think about and practice strategies for puzzle solving in a light-hearted and enjoyable way. 

In our videos we set and solve a variety of maths puzzles. In this video we solve our ‘Distance Time’ Puzzle.

This is actually our last video in this Maths Appeal Puzzle Solving series as we are taking a little break from recording but don’t be sad because every Monday Bobby and I are in videos teaching GCSE Maths topics with our friend Tom Rocks Maths. Find out more here.

We hope our videos bring some maths enjoyment to your homes during these uncertain times. Stay safe & remember ‘a puzzle shared is a puzzle enjoyed!’
