Sums and Differences - A game to develop arithmetic skills in KS2 and KS3

(0)
This was a starter activity for Year 7 originally but I ended up using it for many KS3 class. You are provided with a ‘Blockbuster’ board and 6 double digit numbers. Each cell on the board can be won by finding the two numbers that add or subtract to give the number contained within that cell. One player/team is trying to create a path from top to bottom while the other player/team are attempting to create a path from right to left. The winner is the player/team to complete their path (a draw is impossible). Start with the toss of a coin and then teams take alternating goes - spice it up by adding a timer !
