I made these a couple of years ago as a quick way of getting students onto an activity at the beginning of a lesson, or to use up any dead time at the end of a lesson. They include a huge range of “the basics” and various maths puzzles. I used to print them as A5 booklets that each student would own in their packs.

This game looks an awful lot like Shikaku, but it’s still great. Based on drawing squares / rectangles of given areas.
Similar to the Guardian Maths page, this is essentially the NY Times equivalent but with puzzles and stuff!
SineOfTheTimes posted this lovely interactive puzzle based on creating and relocating isosceles triangles. Gotta love a good puzzle.
