# Treasure Hunts Maths Activity

Created by
grahamcolman

A number / algebra activity based on a treasure hunt. An old favourite. Ideal for KS3 / GCSE. Pupils work out the calculations then colour in the corresponding square on the treasure map, the single remaining square is where the treaure is buried. A great way to make pupils do 50 sums! To follow up, ask pupils to create thier own treasure hunts for you to copy and friends to complete.

Has the potential to be a fantastic resource. Let down by the masses of mistakes in there. Disappointing.

Lovely resource but the first one at least can't be done as 3/4 of 12 = 1/4 of 36 = 9

and

5^2 + 5 + 3^2 - 4^2 = 184/8 = 23.

You need to change one of these to get the answers '8' and '13' and then the answer is 47.

The second one has 692 - 556 which is obviously over 100 as well, though I haven't proofed the rest of it. Students seemed to enjoy it but I should have checked it myself first.
