Problem Solving in Year 6

Developing the Teaching of Problem Solving in Year 6


Mr Reddy - Hamer's very own Maths Consultant - worked with children in Year 6 to develop the importance of mathematical problem solving and its links to all other aspects of the 2014 Maths curriculum.


The children developed an understanding of the need to plan carefully for investigative maths and developed recording skills.


They also worked on structuring problem solving, especially the development of systematic thinking, and used a wide range of resources to ensure that they can successfully develop investigative maths in school.
