32 bar model trio jigsaw cards. These have a word problem, bar model and the number sentence. These are particularly suitable for Year 1 and 2 children who use the bar model and methods linked to The White Rose Maths.
I have included the 32 trios and then also included versions where only one element is present e.g. just the word problem so that children could work out what is the bar model and number sentence independently. I have also included a list of different ways in which you could use this resource so that it is useful for learning addition and subtraction throughout the year. This pack has been updated so that it contain two ways of bar modelling - using brackets and using 2 bars. See the preview to see.
All calculations involve numbers between 1 - 50. 16 are addition and 16 are subtraction using the same numbers so when they are cut up as a jigsaw children need to think about whether it is 15 - 8 or 15 + 8.

Want your students to practise the grid method and formal written methods for multiplication but want something more than just boring calculations? Look no further! Included in this package are 32 tasks cards each with 2 spot the mistake tasks to engage, enrich and extend understanding of the grid method and formal written methods for TUxU and HTUxU.
There are 8 tasks for each type of method so work can differentiated across the class depending on their ability and understanding of the different written methods. They could also be used into conjunction with manipulatives and resources.
8 calculations for each method, 2 on each sheet. Each calculation has an error – wrong multiplication fact, incorrect addition, amounts not carried to the next column etc. Students can identify what is the error, explain clearly the mistake and suggest advice as if they were the teacher. Finally the correct calculation can be written.
There are 4 different written methods for TU x U, grid method and formal written methods. 4 different written methods for HTU x U – grid method and formal written methods.
All xU are x3, x4 or x5 so students concentrate on the method rather than the multiplication facts.
The task cards have been made so that they are easy to photocopy and use. They could be enlarged for those who need more space for their writing.
They could be used as an activity for individuals or students could work in a group of 4 and each complete the first box and then pass to the person on their left, complete the next section and pass again until all the sections are completed. The first box could be used just on its own and students just spot the mistake and write the correct answer in their books – the possibilities are endless! Answers are included.
This activity relates to NC Mathematics Programme of Study:
Yr 3 - Write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods
Yr 4 - multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout

This is a ‘whodunnit’ type of activity linked to the Football World Cup trophy being stolen. Students need to work out how it was stolen, at what time and where is can now be found.
On the sheet, they are given 6 possible answers for each part of the crime and each time they get an answer correct they are given a clue which enables them to cross out one or two of the possible answers.
There are 10 statistics based questions which focus on the Year 6 objectives:
Interpret pie charts and use these to solve problems
Calculate and interpret the mean as an average
This activity could be done as individuals, pairs and small groups. The answer sheet has 10 boxes for any working out.
