Maths on Fire - Matchstick Maths







This publication provides guidance and examples of how matchsticks can be used in a range of mathematical puzzles. The puzzles are designed especially for the 7-14 age range. They provide a wealth of opportunities for:


  • Modelling mathematical concepts
  • Motivating and challenging pupils
  • Promoting positive attitudes
  • Enhancing mathematical thinking


The book is set up so that teachers can photocopy the puzzles without the solutions.


The accompanying CD ROM has interactive versions of the puzzles, in which learners can move around virtual matchsticks to test out possible solutions.


Answers are provided for teachers in the book and on screen. There are also six pages of generic questions to use with the puzzles, an A-Z of mathematical concepts, a guide to naming polygons and guidance on planning.


An ideal resource for starters, plenaries, whole class lessons, extension activities, homework, puzzle days, Maths Clubs and displays.
