**What is it?**

One of my favourite resource uploaders, Mark Greenaway, strikes again with a lovely resource that could be used with all year groups. This is a series of 10 sets of mathematical challenges, each based on a specific content area. All the big names are included – angles, percentages, sequences, you name it! Each challenge acts a prompt for discussion, consolidating or extending the students’ knowledge of that particular area of mathematics.

**How can it be used?**

There are many options here. They could simply be used as starters or plenaries to stimulate discussion and get the students thinking. However, I think there is potential to dedicate a whole lesson to using these. For example, at the end of a teaching unit on Sequences, print out several of these challenges, get the students into groups of 4, and give them 5 minutes to crack each one before they move onto the next. Then have a discussion about which they found the most challenging. And as a finale – could any group design their own? A lovely way to end a topic.

Thank you for sharing!

Hi Craig,

Unfortunately the ‘100 Differentiated Maths Challenges’ no longer seems to be on TES.

Do you know anywhere else I could find it?
