Activity:

#### Activity One

In this activity, students need to recognise that some equations (using whole numbers only) cannot be solved. For example, two cannot be multiplied by a whole number to equal 15.

#### Activity Two

Teachers may need to remind students that Julie is included in the total at the dinner party. They also need to focus on using only the two times table to reach the required solutions.

Activity One
The winner is Julie. She can get four equations right.
Activity Two
1. Yes, 6 x 2 = 12; 12 carrots cut in half gives 24 half carrots. (Julie will be eating as well.)
2. Put them in the cauldron three times:
first time 3 x 2 = 6
second time 6 x 2 = 12
third time 12 x 2 = 24
