Prepare a Presentation

Share your results with a partner. Do you agree about which of the tricks always result in the original number?

  • With your partner, prepare a presentation about why you think certain tricks always work and others do not.

Challenge Problem

  • Write a trick that always results in the original number, no matter what number you start with.
  • Try it on another student. Ask them whether or not they ended up with the same number they started with.
