The fourth article builds on the third by discussing what we mean by problem-solving skills and how NRICH can help children develop these skills.
Scroll down to see groups of tasks from the site which will give learners experience of specific skills.
Math Word Problems (by Type)These word problems are sorted by type: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and more.
Mixed Skills: Word Problems These worksheets, sorted by grade level, cover a mix of skills from the curriculum.
Tackle challenging questions using a variety of mathematical skills with our range of Maths resources designed to teach Problem Solving for KS2 students.
Featuring fun and engaging maths word problems, investigations and games for students at all levels.
Key Features:- As students analyse the problems in Problem Solved they will be required to determine: what the problem is asking, what strategy best suits the problem, what mathematical knowledge needs to be employed, whether the solution makes sense.
Throughout the series, students are encouraged to use a variety of different problem-solving strategies, such as: estimating, discussions, using calculators, using materials, creating algorithms, working backwards and creating tables and lists.
This provides you with practical information about how to implement problem solving in your maths programme as well as some of the philosophical ideas behind problem solving.
This feature is somewhat larger than our usual features, but that is because it is packed with resources to help you develop a problem-solving approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics.
