• Tasks of the Month
Two new cameos this month.
The Task Cameo Content Finder has been updated to include these tasks.

• Cube Numbers is visual algebra in 3 dimensions. Students take a cube apart to seek the cube within that is one size smaller and eventually discover a special case of the difference between two cubes rule.
• Division Boxes is fascinating number problem with several levels of success. Can you find a three digit number such that the first digit is divisible by 1, the first two are divisible by 2 and the first three are divisible by 3? There are many solutions, to this mini-problem, but what happens if the rules are extended to 4, 5, 6, ... 10 digit numbers?

Keep smiling,
Doug.
