Bar models can help us visualise a problem and work out what operation we need to use to find a missing number. The key to bar models is to label the model with the information you know and the number you are trying to find (which is normally shown with a question mark). Can you use bar models to answer these questions?

In algebra we use letters to represent numbers that we don’t know the value of. A string of numbers and letters joined together by mathematical operations such as + and - is called an algebraic expression. Try the following algebra problems.

Lucy wants to make a lovely new lawn. She has to work to a budget and has £220 to spend on turf. Can she have any lawn shape she wants? Work out if she has enough money to buy turf for each of the plans shown below!

When you first learn to find the area of a shape you do it by counting squares. You then learn that you can use formulae to quickly and accurately find the areas of some shapes. Can you remember the formulae and use them reliably? Now find the perimeter and area of all the shapes below (not drawn to scale). Remember to use the correct units of measurement (cm or cm2).

How good are you at tricky area and perimeter questions? Have a go at these calculations.

If you know that 28 x 16 = 448 you can quickly find the answers to lots of similar calculations. Draw a line from each calculation to the correct answer.

Do you know what BODMAS stands for? BODMAS tells us the order we need to complete operations in. If there is a bracket work out the result of the operation inside it first then do division then multiplication and finally do any addition and subtraction. Put your knowledge of BODMAS into practice by having a go at these calculations.

You need to be able to confidently find equivalent fractions and add, subtract and divide fractions before you try these puzzles.

To solve these proportion problems you need to be able to find fractions and percentages of amounts and compare fractions, decimals and percentages. Once you’ve solved the problems, challenge a parent or friend by writing some of your own!

Once you can find 50%, 25%, 75%, 10% and 5% of numbers you can find a lot of other percentages too. Find each of your answers in the coded table to uncover a secret treasure-map message.

On the grid, plot each set of coordinates then find the fourth coordinate to draw the shape given.

Can you find the perimeter of this shape? You’ll need to find the lengths of the two missing sides first. Then see if you can calculate the perimeter of this eight-sided shape? Finally, can you find the area of these shapes?

A net is what a 3D (three-dimensional) shape would look like if it were opened out flat. Find as many different nets as possible that are not the reflection of each other. There are quite a few!

Use your knowledge of how to find the mean, median, mode and range to solve these problems.

Can you find fractions and percentages of amounts and compare fractions, decimals and percentages? Then you’re ready to try solving these problems!

You’ll need to find fractions of amounts and add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions in order to solve the problems on this sheet.

If you can multiply fractions you’ll soon be able to divide them by whole numbers, too. Are you ready to have a go at these tricky calculations?
