Calculator Crunch… it’s fun and it’s free!

Logo for Calculator Crunch

Our Calculator Crunch for Year 6 children is a fun way for your child to work on some interesting maths problems whilst developing their confidence with using a calculator.

It all links with the maths they need to study as part of their curriculum.

How to get going!

  1. The challenge runs over nine days each summer
  2. Every morning we release a new challenge on Twitter and on this webpage
  3. There’s also a set of home learning resources
  4. You don’t need to wait until then, though, as you can still access the Calculator Crunch challenges from previous years

Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about the Calculator Crunch.
