Maths puzzles: Word search seven times table

Free maths word search 7 times table

games2Similar to the 6 times table word search; look for number sentences from the 7 times table. All answers are either across or down, with no diagonals or statements written backwards. The seven times table is often the hardest of all to learn. Unlike the nine times table there is no simple pattern to the answers and it can not be reached by doubling other tables. This is really one to learn off by heart – but remember your children should already know over half of it by knowing other tables such as the 2x, 3x and 5x!

Watch out for the equals signs on the number sentences which go from top to bottom.

Maths puzzles: Word search six times table

maths puzzle word search six times table

games2Here we are – a straightforward six times table word search. The words to the answers to the six times table can be found across, down or diagonally, but not backwards so it is still reasonably straight forward. Good practice at revising the six times table and for spelling those tricky numbers.

The six times table often proves to be tricky for children to learn, but if they have a secure grasp of earlier tables (ie 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x) then the only really new aspects are 6 x 6 = 36 which is a square number, 7 x 6 = 42, 8 x 6 = 48 and 9 x 6 = 54.

Maths puzzles: Word search 3 times table

maths puzzle three times table

games2Now this is not so much a word search as a number search. The grid consists of numbers, the multiplication sign and the equals sign. The idea is to spot statements which you will find in the 3 times table and complete them. All the answers are either up or down, not diagonally and not from bottom to top or right to left.

Two things to note:

1. a row containing 2 3 x 4 = 1 2 5 x 2 has within it the statement 3 x 4 = 12; ignore the numbers and signs either side.

2. the equals signs on statements going down are the wrong way round – sorry about that!!

Quite tricky!

Maths puzzles: Word search measures

free maths puzzle: measure word search

games2Still easy, but this free maths word search is more challenging than the easy peasy length word search. Concentrating on words to do with measurement, including, length, width, depth, centimetre, litre, millilitre, kilogram, weighs, capacity and measure.

Again there are no diagonals to find and the words are not positioned backwards. This is a good chance to talk about the relationship between units of measurement eg 1000 ml in a litre, 1000 grams in a kilogram etc.

As a litre of water can be contained in a 10cm open cube this means that as 10 cm x 10cm x 10cm makes 1000 cm cubed, so one ml of water has the same volume as a centimetre cube.

Maths puzzles: Word search length

Maths word search: length

games2As it’s now well into the long summer holiday this week I will concentrate on a few more relaxing home maths pages. Going to the quiet Dorset countryside for a couple of days so posting Monday’s today. I have a maths word search for young children, the first in our collection of ‘easy peasy’ puzzles! All the words are part of the expected vocabulary for Y1 children to do with measurement of length.
They include: long, short, tall, thick, thin, high, low wide and narrow. The words are all to be found across or down the wordsearch, no diagonals and nothing spelt backwards. Good practice in using the language of measurement. Why not sit down with your child whilst they find the words and talk about the meanings and when you would use them. You can make comparisons by using longer, shorter, etc.
