Here is what I used for my Candy Guess activity. I forgot some of the clues...but these were the main ones for -645.<br />1- The number is a 3 digit number.<br />2- The number is a composite number.<br />3- The number is an integer.<br />4- The number is a multiple of 5.<br />5- Two of the digits are even numbers.<br />6- The number is divisible by three.<br />7- One of the digits is less than 5.<br />8- This number could be found on a number line. (See rule number 3.)<br />9- The hundreds digit has the largest value of the three digits.<br />10- One of the digits is a multiple of 3 and is greater than 5.<br />11- The tens digit is not odd.<br />12- The average temperature of Neptune in degrees Fahrenheit is a bit warmer than this 3 digit number! (This clue finally gave it away that the number was negative. One Student had 645 after the 4th day but was out of the running for having a wrong answer. I did give him a runner up prize!)<br /><br />The first student with a correct answer won the contest however, I only allowed one guess per student. Once they had made a guess they were out of the running for the prize if they made an incorrect guess. I am definitely doing this again...maybe even trying something using polynomials and exponents.Christyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05004248371200090884noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-983138885919319580.post-79983744006229463142012-01-03T21:01:00.408-06:002012-01-03T21:01:00.408-06:00Ok- I LOVE this idea and want to totally steal it....Ok- I LOVE this idea and want to totally steal it. Would you mind posting all of your clues? I'm thinking I'd like to do this activity on a regular basis and it would be great to have yours to copy/adapt from.
