Multiplication: times tables, doubling, multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000, multiplying by multiples of 10 and 100.
Negative numbers: Increasing and decreasing temperature (Celsius), simple subtraction calculations with mostly negative answers, addition and subtraction of negative and positive integers. THIS IS A TES RECOMMENDED RESOURCE. The negative numbers pack includes a loop game and self-check word problem cards alongside 3 puzzles.
For differentiation, there are additional less / more challenging versions of some puzzles.
Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a maths-related word is revealed after completing calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the hidden maths word. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. (In the rounding puzzles pupils find the numbers that don’t round to specified target numbers and in some of the fractions puzzles, pupils must find non-equivalent fractions etc). In many puzzles there is an extension question / challenge linked to the hidden word, which in some cases may require a little research if time.
Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves.
