Place four pebbles on the sand in the form of a square. Play to 37 Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level: After training hard, these two children have improved their results. How might you show them in a picture, with things, with numbers and symbols? Curious Number Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level: Multiply Multiples 2 Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

Use the maps to work out the number of points each of their routes scores. Inky Cube Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level: She has 24 dominoes in her box and there are spots on them altogether. If we number the cubes from the top, starting with 1, can you picture which cubes are directly below this first cube? Follow the Numbers Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

How about the largest possible numbers? Factor-multiple Chains Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level: Age 5 probleem 7 Conjecturing and Generalising at KS1 The tasks in this collection encourage lower primary children to conjecture and generalise.

# Multiplication and Division KS2 :

Use the information to find out what the three numbers were. Use the maps to work out the number of points each of their routes scores.

Can you make 15, 16 and 17 too? Investigate the total number of sweets received by people sitting in different positions.

## Working Systematically at KS2

Scroll down to see our prlblem collection of KS2 problems that require children to work systematically, or explore the two sub-collections focusing on important aspects of systematic working. What happens when you enter different numbers?
