Practise maths vocabulary by playing this fun matching game.
Pupils sometimes struggle with maths problems phrased in words rather than as sums. Decode the simple word problems, work out the answer and find the matching puzzle piece.
Learning and applying appropriate mathematical vocabulary is an important skill. The 2014 curriculum states "pupils should read and spell mathematical vocabulary, at a level consistent with their increasing word reading and spelling knowledge". The trickier maths vocabulary they encounter whilst playing is listed on the back of the box so they can learn these useful terms as they go along. All words used are selected from those learned by or at Phase 5 of Letters and Sounds.
