While waiting for the children to finish their classes, I decided to play a bit with numbers. I ended up with a sketch of another math crossword for kids with mixed math operations up to 100. You can find the pdf version of this sketch in this entry.
What do I mean by mixed math operations? In the crossword you will find addition and subtraction, as well as multiplication and division. A total of 64 mathematical operations to solve. Each of these activities in the simplest arrangement, i.e. written from left to right or top to bottom. Each consists of only two elements and a result. There is no order of operations that need to be taken into account.
The basic version of the crossword contains only enough numbers to allow you to solve the exercise step by step. In a slightly easier version, I added 6 additional numbers that will make it easier to check individual stages, or simply allow you to start mathematical operations in more places. Each of these versions is available in a separate file, in a version as a mathematical crossword with a solution, and in a version for students, i.e. without a solution.
When is it worth using this type of mathematical games for kids? First of all, when children have already mastered the basics of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This is an exercise intended to diversify learning and stimulate children’s curiosity. I know from experience that at least for some children it was a nice, entertaining way of repeating and consolidating mathematical knowledge.
