Thanks for sharing. This is a terrific resource. A lot of time must have gone into producing it.

This looks a fantastic resource and I can't wait to try it out, the sort of rich task I love! There's a lot of maths in it and I'm sure the pupils will get a lot out of it and enjoy it. Very impressive pupil's model answer as well. Thank you!
