Investigations by a Yr 5 pupil;

"This morning there was a calculation on the board; 2³ x 4³ =? I did the sum and then realised that it equalled 512 which is 8³. Then I thought 2 x 4 = 8 so I tried this with others e.g 6³ x 3³ and the same thing applied. Then I tried the sums 4² x 6² = 576 (24² ) again the same thing occurred."

All of this was done without a calculator and with the power of enquiry.
