## Plus Advent Calendar Door #24: Approaching midnight

Submitted by Marianne on December 24, 2015We're there, we're there, we're nearly there!

Tomorrow is Christmas day! We know just how hard it is to pass those last 24 hours before the presents appear under the tree, so we have a little game for you to while away the time. Take turns in moving the hands of the clock, and the first person to reach midnight wins. You can play the game using this interactivity on Wild Maths. There you can also get some help to find a winning strategy, and find further questions to explore.

Happy Christmas!

* Wild Maths encourages students to explore maths beyond the classroom and is designed to nurture mathematical creativity. The site is aimed at 7 to 16 year-olds, but open to all. It provides games, investigations, stories and spaces to explore, where discoveries are to be made. Some have starting points, some a big question and others offer you a free space to investigate. *
