Maths Puzzle

I though I would share the maths activity we used in class today. It is really good for gaining a greater depth understanding of number and place value. – Mr Salmon

To complete the activity you will need the digits 0 to 9. You could used playing cards for this, but you might want to turn a card over to make the zero card.

The aim is to make a two digit number for each of the following rules. You are only allowed to use each digit once.

  • An even number
  • An odd number
  • A number greater than 50
  • A multiple of ten (a number in the ten times table)
  • A number less than 20
Here is one solution. There are lots of possibilities

This activity can be extended by changing the rules to include different times tables or changing what number it is larger or smaller than.
