Brain Busters
Ages: 5-11

The Brain Busters challenge resources below include three pages of Maths challenges. The teacher should choose a ‘Star Number’ and write this inside the star on each sheet. Students can then use their mathematical skills (including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, doubling, rounding and more) to complete every box in their grid.

Three sheets are available with different numbers of boxes to complete and different levels of difficulty, so you can choose the appropriate page to meet the needs and abilities of the children in your class.

An Excel document is also available, which will generate the answers to each grid. Just enter the ‘Star Number’ in box A2 to check your children’s answers quickly! A few of the questions couldn’t be answered on the Excel sheet, so if anyone knows of a formula that will generate these answers, please get in touch!

Display Resources!

We have also created a number of display resources to accompany this activity, so you can create a display board linked to the idea. A banner, brain poster and set of printable challenges are included. If you laminate the challenge pages, your children could write their answers on them using dry-erase pens!
