Math Solving Problems

Solving problems should be at the heart of mathematical teaching and learning.

When we set kids problems to solve, we are giving them a reason for learning and practicing all the skills and learning all the facts in lessons.

The problems on this page all involving Finding All Possibilities.

This means that every problem set will have many different answers.

Most problems we set for kids will only have a single correct answer. The problems on this page have lots of different solutions which need to be found. It encourages children to persevere and try different approaches if one approach does not work.

Many of the problems are easily extendable by simply changing one of the variables.

The aim of the problems is to get kids thinking logically and working systematically to find all the possible answers.

The level of the worksheets goes from 1st grade to 5th grade (UK Years 1 to 6).

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- apply their math skills to solve problems;
- develop a systematic approach;
- persevere and try to find as many answers as possible.
