  • spatial reasoning problems and patterning problems


  • 3 boxes per year level (18 in total) - Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry, Statistics & Chance
  • 30 unique cards in each box
  • extension problem on the back of each card for differentiation
  • a variety of problem-solving questions including: word problems, logic problems, visual problems, rules and patterns, and finding all possibilities
  • problem-solving strategy icons on each card as visual reminders for students
