Sale price$12.00


Want a fun way to fire up your student's brains and review key concepts learnt? In this download you will get 50 mental maths sorts - enough for one per student, per day for one term.

✩Each set of 10 sorts contain the same question types. Each set of 10 sorts get progressively harder and is colour coded to avoid mixed up strips.


✩Concepts covered include addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, money, counting, odd/even, tallies and place value.


✩Students are given a sort and must find the strip with 'start' written on it. They then read the first question and find the next strip that has the answer on it. You may wish to time how long it takes the students to do each sort for extra challenge or motivation.



✩Print, laminate and cut the strips so that each strip contains an answer and a question. Store each sort with an elastic band or in a zip lock bag.


✩Print pages and leave whole to act as answer keys for students to mark their own work. Print sorts two to a page to save paper.

Maths Sorting Strips

These maths strips are engaging and fun while also building much needs maths knowledge. My students love them, we use them as a warm up and they often ask if they can do them if they finish early. Thank you Mrs Amy.

Ammie Wood
Great resource!

I have been using these for a few years now for early finishers in maths lessons. They are fantastic. They are clear, colourful and appealing to my students.
I have both this and the upper set and have them mixed in together. The conversations that these generate as students discuss the possible answers, remember old or explore new concepts is so valuable.

You need this resource!

I love these Mental Math Games and so do my students! They are great for a warm up prior to Math lessons, a morning activity when students enter the room, fast finishers activity or just to consolidate understanding of a number of different maths concepts.

Karen Smith
Fabulous resource

My kids love the Mental Maths sorts - as a teacher of a multi-age composite, it is so easy to differentiate by having the Upper and Middle sorts available and the students choose which level they want to do. We do them as either warm-up activities or as part of a rotation. Students time themselves and try to beat their time the next time they do that sort. For my Yr 3 students, they do it in pairs and discuss where they think they should go - great mathematical language deveolpment.
