**Count in multiples of 6**

**Investigation: Say in 6’s**

Jo counted in stages of 6 starting from 0 (0, 6, 12…).

Which of the following numbers will she say?

# 24, 31, 54, 56, 77, 84.

Prove or explain how you know if they would be said or not.

Cayden counted in stages of 6 starting at 2 (2, 8, 14, 20…)

Which of the following numbers will he say?

# 40, 51, 56, 73, 74.

Prove or explain how you know Cayden would or wouldn’t say the numbers.

Answers:

- Jo’s numbers. Jo would say 24, 54, 84. Children should be able to dismiss 31 and 77 immediately as they are odd numbers
- Cayden would say the numbers 56 and 74. The numbers are two more than any number in the x6 table. This could be further challenged by asking children to consider which other numbers Cayden could say.
