  • Going to put these on my working wall as an extension task.
    I like the editable version as I can adapt the questions as well.

  • Nice idea. The comment on each card - "How many different ways can you find to do this" is fine for the cards where there are two blank amounts (e.g. [ ] [ ] = 7) but it not appropriate for questions such as 7 [ ] = 10 (for example) as there is only one way of 'doing' this.

    • I'm sure the cards are referring to the way in which you calculate rather than the actual answer, ie counting on, counting back, subtraction etc

    • Hi Sarah
      This was intentional because being able to recognise, and explain why, there is only one correct answer is a valuable skill in itself! If you would prefer a version with this taken off, please let us know and we can ask a designer to do this for you :).
