Mrs Laird once again comes in to P5 to show us a fun mental maths activity using cards.

This one has turned out to be Mr Brown’s favourite so far!

You place 5 (or more or less to vary the challenge) cards in a circle and you must use addition, subtraction, multiplication or division to cancel all the numbers out to make zero. For example 7 – 7 = 0.

If you have a pack of cards at home maybe you could try this?
