Christmas Calcogram Santa had just finished loading the  125 when realised he couldn’t 67  5 a single reindeer. “  2 me” he said. “Where have they gone. If we don’t 60 ÷ 100 soon we’ll never get round all the children tonight.” He grabbed 900 – and rang it loudly. He waited and listened, but nothing happened. “Come on boys”, he muttered, or 1191  3 I’ll have to phone the 2 ÷ 100 and 319  2 them to send some more deer. Just then there came a 8  47077 from behind the stables.

Answer First Santa saw a pair of 23596 + 33738 then two
1879  3 then at last the whole of Rudolf appeared. “ ÷11 Santa. Did you like our joke? Don’t look so worried. The others are all ready but they’re hiding in a 463  8 in the 6  ” He smiled. “They know you’re the 9000 – 3492 really.” “Alright, come on, let’s ÷ 20” said Santa, with a 923  5 of relief. He got out 257  2 list. “Now let’s see, I’ve got a computer for  11 and the 637 ÷ 1000 for Gemma, and the bike for 3  ” “  0.4” chuckled Santa and off they went.

You will need to put the letters in the correct order.
Solve the algebraic clues to find the letters in the name of a Christmas character. You will need to put the letters in the correct order.

e/m means e ÷ m Rules of algebra
a + b means the value of a added to the value of b c – d means take away the value of d from the value of c 3x means 3 times the value of x 3x = 3 × x pq means p × q abc means a × b × c e/m means e ÷ m h² means h × h ( h squared)

Clue 1 = k - j Clue 2 = e + m Clue 3 = z/a Clue 4 = 5e

The Twelve Days of Christmas
Back The Twelve Days of Christmas On the third day, 6 presents were sent. On the fifth day, 15 presents were sent. On the tenth day, 55 presents were sent. Altogether, over the twelve days = 364 presents

1/6 n³ + ½ n² + 1/3 n = 1/6 n (n + 1)(n + 2)
Back Note that the number of presents given each day is a triangular number and the sum of the first n triangular numbers is called a tetrahedron number. Hence 364 is a tetrahedron number. Over 20 days the total number of presents would be: = 1540. A general formula to give the number of presents on day n (triangular numbers) ½ n (n +1) A general formula to give the number of presents sent altogether over the first n days is: 1/6 n³ + ½ n² + 1/3 n = 1/6 n (n + 1)(n + 2)

Christmas Calcogram Back
Santa had just finished loading the SLEIGH when HE realised he couldn’t SEE a single reindeer. “BLESS me” he said. “Where have they gone. If we don’t GO soon we’ll never get round all the children tonight.” He grabbed HIS BELL and rang it loudly. He waited and listened, but nothing happened. “Come on boys”, he muttured, or ELSE I’ll have to phone the ZOO and BEG them to send some more deer. Just then there came a GIGGLE from behind the stables. First Santa saw a pair of HEELS then two LEGS then at last the whole of Rudolf appeared. “HELLO Santa. Did you like our joke? Don’t look so worried. The others are all ready but they’re hiding in a HOLE in the HILLS” He smiled. “They know you’re the BOSS, really.” “Alright, come on, let’s GO ” said Santa, with a SIGH of relief. He got out HIS list. “Now let’s see, I’ve got a computer for LESLIE and the LEGO for Gemma, and the bike for ISOBEL.” “HOHOHO” chuckled Santa and off they went.
