Spring Term 1

Since September we have been working our way through the different key problem solving skills listed below:
  • Trial and improvement;
  • Working systematically;
  • Pattern spotting;
  • Working backwards;
  • Reasoning logically;
  • Visualising;
  • Conjecturing. 


We have practiced each of the skills twice and on both occasions we talked in detail about the maths challenge. Miss Taylor is now going to randomly pick a maths challenge each week so we can experience lots of contexts in which to practice each one of the problem solving skill.
