Year 6 Maths Worksheet: Negative numbers magic square

magic square negative numbers

Magic squares come in all sorts of formats and these are quite challenging as they involve adding negative and positive numbers and are probably most suited to Year 6 children (10/11 yrs old).

On all three squares the numbers to put into the squares are given and on the first puzzle there is a clue that each row, column and diagonal adds up to -3.

To be successful with these it is important to work out what the centre number should be and what the total of each row etc should be.

There are several different ways of solving these magic squares and just one way is shown on the answer page.
