**Adding and subtracting negative numbers**

When I talked about this with my Further maths student daughter, she said she was still confused by this, and was taught using a 'walking man'. I've found a couple of resources that use this...

Shows a lesson taught using this method of breaking down the concept.

I'm excited by this as it may have a lot more resources to explore, too.

I found this by accident looking for something below. It's not really a public page, but a list of several very well written investigations. Super excited by this, but no real link to the world!

**Abundant, deficient and perfect numbers**- a factors investigation

I've just finished reading 'The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa. The professor of the story, following a car accident years before, only has 80 minutes of memory, but does hold onto his past maths knowledge. In the story he teaches the housekeeper and her son the beauty of maths and in particular of investigating numbers.

A key theme is factors of numbers, particularly deficient, abundant and perfect numbers, and he is delighted by the number 28 - it's a perfect number (all it's factors (minus the number itself) add up to the number itself 1+2+4+7+14 = 28 - beautiful!)

I've done this project with several students that I tutor - it's a great way to get students thinking about factors for a reason (sort of)

Here's a fantastic project on this very subject:

Another investigation http://nrich.maths.org/2555

This is another description of them: http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/prime-numbers-advanced.html

This is starting to get really heavy, but who can resist happy, frugal, wasteful...numbers - I can think of a few children who, once they understand the definitions of perfect etc, would enjoy looking into this. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=10&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CFUQFjAJ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gcisd-k12.org%2Fcms%2Flib%2Ftx01000829%2Fcentricity%2Fdomain%2F733%2Ftypes_of_numbers.doc&ei=-VL0U7GEIOic0AX95IGYBA&usg=AFQjCNGa1YgeXoC6mjO4ttkG6b4v4nTQPw&sig2=zB-Rpahvps6T-ssB8KDHNg&bvm=bv.73231344,d.d2k
