100 Square Jigsaw

Age 5 to 7 Challenge Level:
We had a few solutions sent in that just included a picture of the one hundred square. 

Jack from Pakuranga Heights School in New Zealand and Roman from Wahroonga Public School in  Australia sent in correct solutions. 

Alex from Elm Park Primary School in New Zealand sent in the four solutions:


We were particularly looking for explanations of how you completed the jigsaw. Many of you suggested starting with the piece which had the zero on. Katie from Queen's Lower School said:

Look for the first number which would be 0 and put that in place. That bit will also fill in other numbers so you keep looking for the next number that has to be filled in. If you keep filling it in like that you should do it really easily.

Upper Blue Class at the Grange Junior School wrote:

We completed this as a class and worked as a team. We looked at the numbers and saw if they matched and then put the piece in like a jigsaw. We helped each other by counting on to see if they were in the right places.

Thank you for these solutions - it's good to hear how the task is approached.
