The ‘mathematical snacks’ are tasks, puzzles, challenges, and games produced by the Association of Teachers of Maths to support children who are currently home learning, to support and enrich the mathematics taught at school. Many can be accessed by very young children, with a little bit of adult support, and all of them are relevant to pupils across the whole school age-range.

There is hardly ever a single right answer and there are many ways of working on these tasks.  They are designed to be enticing and focus on working in ways that mathematicians do; such as exploring situations, looking for patterns and rules, asking questions and seeking answers, and, trying out and testing ideas.
