Students can practise the recall of multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 x 12 with a twist and extra problem-solving element with our multiplication arithmagons. Here there are 27 arithmagons in total broken up into sections of 3.
In sections A and E, pupils will work ‘forwards’ by writing the product of the numbers in the circles in the rectangle between them.
In sections B and F, students will work ‘forwards’ and ‘backwards’ to solve the arithmagon puzzles with some products given.
Increasing in difficulty, the worksheet progresses to only providing the products and students will have to consider all three in order to solve the puzzles.
