## A city of towers

An interactive whiteboard problem solving activity suitable for many levels. Makes a fun starter activity and provides a good link between shape and space and algebra. Can also used as a hands on activity for all (rather than just volunteers at the smartboard) using pencil and squared paper, plastic squares or wooden/plastic cubes.
