Magic Square investigation. KS2. Problem solving.

Created by

Teaching notes for a lesson finding a magic square, using a spreadsheet to help find the totals. A spreadsheet is provided but you might want to include writing one as a lesson activity.

I've used this successfully with KS2 (especially Y5 and 6), KS3 and KS4. Good for whole classes or small groups, eg gifted and talented.
