These hands-on problem solving activities have been used in our Maths Roadshow, and may be of interest to teachers wanting to run similar maths events, maths clubs, open evenings or family-friendly maths events.
Most of the resources include a link to a printable sheet (either at the top or bottom of the page), along with teachers' resources, which offer some guidance on how the activity can be used with students. Many of the activites require some sort of equipment, mostly dice, counters or multilink, so you might find this equipment list helpful.
