Use this challenging resource to teach and practise mathematical reasoning based on column addition skills. All of the numbers to make a complete addition are given by the resource.  The player needs to switch the tiles around to make it correct.  The tiles in the question and answer parts can, and will need to be, […]

This teaching resource for iPad, Android, and IWB is for visualising addition for younger learners.  Generate a new addition (maximum sum of 20) cover one of the numbers and use the counters to represent the numbers being added.

This teaching resource, compatible with iPad and Android tablets, provides a chance to practise completing additions where one of the numbers to add is missing.  Drag the tiles on the right to fill in the blank space.  A correct answer results in the addition disappearing.  An incorrect answer leaves the addition there but also adds […]

The game starts as soon as the player touches the tiles.  The challenge is to select a group of adjacent numbers that sum to the target number.  For example to reach 5 you might select 1,2,2.  Valid tiles are horizontally or vertically adjacent to the last selected tile.  The first tile for each selection […]

Column Addition 3 Digits

This interactive teaching resource is for demonstration purposes.  Using it teachers can show a vast number of examples easily and clearly.  Generate a new question and then tap the answer tiles to increase by one.  Below the main section is a smaller set of tiles that show exactly what is happening – whether you are […]

Lock Down

A magic square maths variation on the sliding puzzle used in the Letter Blocks resource.  Use this on an IWB, computer, iPad or Android device to take up the challenge of making each row, column and the two diagonal lines add up to 12.  The catch is that one of the numbers cannot move and […]

Nine Digits

A mathematical based puzzle for IWB, iPad and Android that requires some careful numeracy thinking and some informed trial and error. When the resource opens you will see that both multiplication calculations give the same result of 3634. The highest number that can be the answer for both calculations using each of the nine digits […]
