FREE for new buyers – Enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. A bundle of 24 fun Maths / Numeracy Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Puzzles (and solutions) for Key Stage 2 (KS2) and equivalents, plus two other resources (The negative numbers pack includes a loop game and self-check word problem cards alongside 3 puzzles). All solutions are provided. Rounding, Fractions, Multiplication and Negative Numbers are covered here, including puzzles at different levels and on different concepts to suit a range of year groups and abilities throughout the stage: Rounding: To the nearest 10, 100, 1000, whole number, one and two decimal places, nearest pound (dollar version also included) Fractions: Equivalent fractions, simplest form / simplifying, fractions of quantities, mixed numbers and improper fractions 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. An engaging alternative to worksheets, these make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities! 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 mistakes. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the hidden maths word. (In the rounding puzzle 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). Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. There is an extension question / challenge linked to the hidden word, which on some puzzles 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.
