Question from Asma, a student:

I wanted to know what i should include in my T-totals maths coursework and also how i should lay out the coursework?

Hi Asma,

I think that T-numbers and T-totals are good topics for an exploratory activity. We had that kind of activity form a teacher, Mr. Wiseman a while ago. My response was algebraic but it might just be an exploration with numbers and practice with arithmetic. You could keep track in a table and then see if you could find a relationship. Using Mr. Wisemans grid

T-number T-total
20 37
21 42
29 82
