Mr. Guthrie’s Students Challenge the Answer Key
On Friday afternoon during our GECDSB Middle Years Collaborative Inquiry Learning Fair, Craig Guthrie received a notification from his class Schoology account that a student had posted a question.
The student indicated that there was a question on the University of Waterloo Gauss Math Contest Practice Test that the class was debating over. The answer key stated one answer, but a number of students felt that the answer could not be correct.
Gauss Math Contest Practice Question
The question students were at a disagreement over was the following:
The sum of 11 different whole numbers can be ______, but never less.
The answer key states that the answer is a) 11, but what do you think?
