Math Solving Problems

develop systematic skills to find all the possible solutions to the problems posed.

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.

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.
