Review this resource
A really confusing resource. The children found it very hard to complete as with the exemplary one starting with 5 - the numbers just don't match up as you work your way through. E.g starting from 5 going down x100 is 500 but then if you come to it from the right where you have 0.5 you don't get 500 as the answer. I am nor sure I have understood this correctly.

Thank you for your message. Although most of our resources have answers where appropriate, some of our earlier ones do not and this is, unfortunately, one of those. As the students will be taking all sorts of different routes through the maze, it should be straightforward to check their answers.

Thank you for your comment, Kirsty. The arrows point in both directions because students could go either way as they find paths through the maze to try to find the highest value. I hope this helps.

I don't understand why the horizontal arrows point in both directions. It's unnecessarily confusing.
