Number Puzzles

The resources on this page are designed to support children who do not acquire maths concepts easily. They are simplified to reduce either the complexity and/or the time taken to solve. It is important that these children are given challenges that help them to develop resilience; but at the same time ensure that their enjoyment of maths is maintained. They involve the same logical thinking as more complex puzzles. Adults can support these children by focussing on developing metacognition of the skills and strategies that lead to success.
