Hiya!

Hope this isn't too late!

Ok. To start the coursework you need to create a table of numbers (10x10 usually does the trick.) Now, create T shapes in different places on the grid e.g. squares 1, 2, 3, 12 & 22 make one T shape. Record your findings into a table of results and analyse your findings - this should give you a good start to the investigation and allow you to form some ideas.

Hope this helps - good luck
Let me know how it goes :hello:

hmm, i did this in year 9. isn't it a bit easy for gcse?

anyway, the drill's the same: do a table with the first x number of results, work out a formula using the number. prove the formula relating it to the pattern. Then investigate another more complex shape.

yeah i did this as a practice coursework about 4 years ago, arent you meant to relate the 't-number' ( the number at the bottom of the t) to the sum of the numbers in the t ?? I remember finding a formula for this on a 10x10 grid (sorry, cant remember what that is!) and then I went onto investigate different sized t's and then went on to different sized grids and found general formulae for all of this - i think they were formulae to work out the sum of all the numbers in the t, given the 't-number'
Sorry, that is quite jumbled, but it gives you an idea of what sort of investigation I did to begin with and how I advanced/extended my investigation.... and as I said, sorry I cant remember the formulae, I did it when i was 13
