This one-off Maths lesson is a great way of helping your class use what they know about number and calculations to solve problems. They will be given a target number and a set of four digits which they have to use in a variety of ways to form calculations that equal the target number. Some are easy but some are fiendishly tricky and will need knowledge of square and cube numbers, as well as brackets and the order of operations. Perfect as an end of term or supply lesson, this Target Number Challenge is completely free to download and is sure to get their brains whizzing away!

This free downloadable lesson contains a plan, slideshow presentation and printable resources.
