Maths Challenge Cards

The maths challenge cards are short activity ideas that can fit into your day and will help your child see maths as fun. The cards relate to the different strands of the area of learning called ‘Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy.’ N =Numbers for Labels and Counting C = Calculating SSM = Shape, Space and Measures.

You can repeat each activity as many times as your child wants to. Feel free to change the ideas to suit your child’s interests, what you have in your house and their current level of development. If your child wants to represent their thinking on paper let them do so in their own way. For example they might not want to write numbers, but they might want to draw to communicate their mathematical thinking.


We encourage you to share any ideas you have for maths challenges so that our collection of cards can grow and we can learn from one another
