WORD PROBLEMS and PROBLEM SOLVING
This week we will be improving our problem solving skills!
Mental Maths Ideas
Watch the following videos before completing the activities for the week.
There are 21 challenge cards. You could cut them out and lay them face down on the table then take it turns with someone to turn over a card and answer the question. Remember to read each question thoroughly before answering. You might want some scrap paper so that you can show your working out. Think about what method to use for support!
Today we will be solving two-step problems.This means that you will need to read the question more than once to ensure you have answered it fully. You will need to work out which operation to use and then consider which method you could use. Once you have completed a question, re-read the question just for one final check!
Here are some multi step word problems for you to complete. You will need to read them at least twice before answering. There are different levels of difficulty but start with bronze (1 star) and then challenge yourself with a silver (2 star) or gold (3 star) question. Use a highlighter or coloured pencil to identify the key information and then think about which operations to use. Check your answers once complete.
