Y6 – MATHS PROBLEMSOLVINGThis week Year 6 have been attempting lots of Maths puzzles and problems. We have been using different methods and strategies to solve problems – e.g. working backwards, trial and error, working methodically and using basic algebra. We focused on explaining our methods clearly and extending the problem. We had to learn how to persevere with a problem and try out lots of different ways of solving it – some problems took twenty minutes before we got to a final answer and some didn’t even have just one answer!!!Solving these problems has really tested our successful learner skills.Here is one that adults can try!
