In the math talk that followed, these were some of the ideas that came up:
- the sums showed a growing pattern
- the number of dominoes for each sum showed a growing, then shrinking pattern
- the shape of the graph was the opposite of the shape of our weekly temperature graph
- reasons there would be more domino sums for 6 than for 0 or 12
It's very exciting to see these young mathematicians making discoveries, connecting new learning to previous learning, and sharing their ideas!
