Can I have two from the top please?

We thought we would share with you an activity we love to play in class.

The Countdown numbers game is a great way to practice our maths skills and challenge each other at the same time. If you haven’t seen it on T.V. you have choose any 6 cards that each have a hidden number. The top row contains the numbers 25, 50, 75, 100 and the bottom row contains numbers from 1 to 10. We like to choose two from the top row, and four from the bottom row.

The challenge is to use the numbers available and the four standard operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to hit the target without using the same number more than once, you don’t have to use every number.

If you want to play the game yourself you can click on the link below. Enjoy.
