On the first day of Christmas ...
The perfect song for mathematicians!
The version we're familiar with is thought to have originated from France and was first published in England in 1780. The Faroe Islands have their own version of the rhyme with an even more generous gift list that includes sheep, cows, oxen, ponies, goats and cheese!
Keeping with this spirit of generosity we have created a Christmas quiz based on the Twelve Days of Christmas for you to use with your students. How many gifts did the lucky person receive each day? How many did she receive in total? Where on earth is she going to keep everything?
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and happy New Year.
