Maths Squares Magazine

100 Maths Squares Maths is an absolutely essential school subject. Even in these days of calculators, a good feel and command of basic mental arithmetic is such as important life skill.

And that's where our maths square magazine comes in handy - the magazine contains 100 puzzles in a range of difficulty levels. These are: Easy Peasy, Up and Running, Halfway Mark, Getting Tricky and Final Hurdle. Puzzles start nice and gently and get progressively harder across the five difficulty levels. The solutions to all 100 puzzles are at the back so you can check if you get stuck, or of course ensure you got the right answer.

The puzzles will test the four different arithmetical skills outlined above. They will also give a great sense of achievement on completing the puzzles, and you can record your scores on each section at the back of the magazine. It's on A4 paper and also has some fun colour illustrations to accompany the text, with congratulatory text at the end of each section.

As your child works through the puzzles you might want to discuss methods of helping to solve the sums that you can use - or even better ask your child if they have spotted any patterns or rules that they can use. The sorts of things to consider include:
