Problem solving!

Greeting Europe class this morning were six tables, each with a tricky mathematical problem to solve. The idea of each station was to test the children s knowledge of applying concrete materials to abstract mathematical concepts. It tested the children’s knowledge of shape, fractions, bar modelling and the balancing out of equations.

There were fantastic discussions, wow moments when the problem just clicked, and some brilliant thinking faces! The task at home will be to see if any of the children can think of their own mathematical problem to give to a family member, Mr Lewis or maybe even….Mr King!
