Maths Challenge - Mental Maths Quiz

Each Maths Challenge Quiz has three sections:

  • 1: Beat the clock! Quick fire questions across a range of themes.
  • 2: Problem solving. Applying mathematical strategies to real-world situations.
  • 3: Juggling numbers. Using mathematical processes (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to juggle three numbers to create a target number.

Each quiz is about 15 minutes long and has been devised to consolidate mental maths skills at Key Stage 2 - they're particularly suitable for pupils aged 10/11. The emphasis is firmly on having fun with numbers.
