The Algebra and Inverses Puzzles Compendium - Give your children the best preparation to face the unknown!

Algebra and inverses have never been more important in the primary maths curriculum… In fact, 14 marks in the 2023 Maths SATs required these very skills.  Our latest product, the Algebra and Inverses Puzzles Compendium, will ensure that your children are ready to face the unknown!

Your children will be transformed into the role of MI8 agents, where they will have to use their algebra and inverse skills to thwart the operatives of ACE – Associated Criminal Enterprises! This worldwide group of criminals is hell-bent on causing chaos – your children will need to stop them from committing many heinous crimes such as kidnapping the Prime Minister, and stealing one of the Angel of the North’s wings! However, prevention is better than cure, so your children will also be involved in tracking down ACE agents across the globe and hacking their technology such as spy satellites and Sat Navs! 

The Algebra and Inverses Puzzles Compendium is packed with high-quality resources, designed by an award-winning teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience. Your children will love the colourful, cartoon images and the challenge of completing a task, rather than just contextless worksheets. And teachers will love that all the puzzles have the ANSWERS ON THE SHEET. Your children will know instantly if they are getting the work right, and will be able to self-correct or ask for help… What a way to develop your children into independent, self-confident learners! And of course, since there is a definite answer and the children will know themselves if their work is correct, marking is minimal! 

There are over 300 puzzles in the compendium, incorporating 2 to 4 levels of differentiation, so there will be plenty to challenge the whole school. They cover subjects as diverse as “I’m thinking of a number” problems, number machines, balanced scales, creating formulae and even the type where shapes are assigned numbers - just like question 21 in paper B of the 2018 maths SATs.  All the puzzles are provided as easy-to-print pdf files, so you can use them whenever you like, and in whatever order.   At only £50 for over 300 puzzles, that's less than 16p per puzzle!
