The Josephus Problem

In this assessment, students need to recognize and apply certain properties of exponents and powers to successfully complete the investigation, as well as apply spatial reasoning and logical thinking. The final outcome of determining a general rule to predict the survivor’s position with any number of soldiers in the circle need not be expressed algebraically, but students will need to provide a clear description of their general rule and demonstrate verification of their results.
