Crossword math 1 is like doing a regular crossword but with numbers instead of words. This is an amazingly fun way to make math seem like play. The crossword 'clues' are math sums you have to complete in the grid itself. The concept is very simple. Solve one math sum in order to solve the next that joins to it. Work your way around the grid until all the sums are solved. Once the entire grid is filled, put the highlighted numbers into the grid below to solve the bonus math equation at the bottom for a bit of extra fun.
All skills and confidence levels are catered for throughout the 34 sheets in the series. The first sheets are relatively simple but they do get progressively much more challenging.
There are dedicated sheets for each type of operator (+, -, x & /) as well as extra sheets with sums that use all the operators.
Each sheet has a twin with the same grid and the same solution but with a different compliment of numbers missing to begin with. The first of each twin is a much more challenging configuration with the second a bit easier (fewer sums to solve, easier to find solutions, etc.)
There are 3 levels for beginners, intermediate and advanced mental arithmetic skills.
Don't worry, there's are answers sheets to show you where all the numbers go as well as the full list of ever sum represented on every sheet. You can use these to easily identify which students are at the right level for which sheets.
Suitable for printing is colour as well as B/W.
