Year 6 go cryptarithm crazy!

Miss Frood has introduced Year 6 to another brain teasing maths problem…cryptarithms, or alphametics. We have spent three lessons working on these problems where digits are represented by letters, the aim is to work out the value of the letter. The letters often form some funny words and phrases! We have got more and more confident with them and this week some people even cracked a long multiplication problem!
