Listing Detail Tabs

These are Number Puzzles that require a mix of mathematical reasoning and basic fact knowledge to solve.

This 30 page resource, which will be emailed to you, as a .pdf file, contains over 150 Puzzles! (6 puzzles to an A4 page) and is suitable for students Year 3 - Year 6, depending on ability.

Basic Arithmagons are polygons, with a circle number on each vertex and a box number on each side. Each box number is the sum of the two circle numbers adjacent to it.

The difficulty level can be increased by variations of the basic puzzle.

The resource includes Arithmagon Puzzles where the given numbers are either
- 3 circle numbers
- 2 circle and 1 rectangle number
- 1 circle and 2 rectangle numbers
- 3 rectangle numbers

There are three sets of puzzles using
- Single Digit numbers
- Two digit numbers to 20
- Two digit numbers to 99

- Blank Arithmagon Puzzles.
- A4 Arithmagon Mini Poster

These activities are fun and challenging, and involve using and applying number skills. As there are so many different combinations of missing numbers there are problem solving activities for every ability group.

Students will find that if you are given the circle numbers it is quite easy to work out the square numbers, but starting with the square numbers and working out the circle numbers, is much harder!

(By working through the puzzles and having lots of opportunities to explore their findings, students will notice patterns to do with odd and even numbers and interesting results, like the sum of the square numbers is always twice the sum of the circle numbers.)
