Discussion points for teachers
- Use Indiana’s clues and the information in the notebook to work out what the value of each artefact could be. Discuss what the missing values could be by exploring which numbers must stay the same, and which values may change based on the clues.
- Order the artefacts according to their value. Discuss how to use place value to order the numbers and whether to use ascending or descending order.
- Use the key to decipher the numbers. Discuss what each digit represents, and the different ways numbers can be shown.
- Help Indiana compare the numbers he has deciphered using the symbols <, > and =. Discuss what the symbols mean and how best to organise the comparison statements.
- Help him to fill in his notebook using the clues. Discuss how to use place value to complete the numbers and work through any important terminology (such as square root).
