GCSE Maths Sequences search worksheet

I hate wordsearches where all the words are given, especially in Maths. What are they learning? What I do like to do is create puzzles, like this one, where a mathematical skill is required to generate the values that need to be found in the puzzle. One sequence seems to repeat, make sure you find both of them otherwise the code doesn't quite work out right. This takes almost a full lesson.

    Really not quite sure. But has anyone noticed an extra (S)?

    I did this myself and got "CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE COMPLETED A SEQUENCE (S) SEARCH".

    An extra "S" from the third row from last, second column, between 5(uncrossed, E) and 18(crossed out).

      COngratulations you have completed a sequences search. No extra S, I suppose it could have been called a sequence search but I needed an extra character.

    Lovely - thank you. I made this simpler by just using the sequence search, and students then just write the sequence into their books with the rule, as they haven't done Nth rule yet!
