# Operation Wheel Blanks

## What is the resource?

This PDF provides blank 'wheels' with a circle in the middle and spaces for numbers around it. Designed for primary learners practising operations.

## Why are operation wheels important?

They turn calculation into a visual puzzle, emphasising fact families:

• Seeing connections: Students link by adding/subtracting, inverses... all from one 'starting point'.
• Reinforces patterns: How does +5 shift answers around the wheel? Rules become obvious.
• Promotes fluency: Moving fast around the wheel builds mental quickness with number relationships.
• Problem-solving tool: Use a completed wheel to find missing numbers – more challenging.

## Why is this resource helpful?

This blank format lets teachers  customise the task to focus on specific skills:

• Adaptable challenge: Fill with simple adding or make it tricky with larger values.
• Encourages creativity: Kids design wheels, test each other – and turn the drill into a puzzle.
• Beyond just worksheets: More visually engaging for early learners and hands-on.
• Printable PDF: Ready-made wheels ensure all kids can start solving quickly.

These wheels help solidify fact families. This foundation supports more complex maths later, as operations shift from a chore to a tool.
