Maths Investigations help

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Danielle1988, Jul 21, 2011.

  1. Whilst on supply I have been using lots of Maths investigations for children.
    I am now a year 5/6 teacher and want to have some of these for my own class. Does anyone know a good website containing Maths problems/investigations. A good one I can remember was frogs and toads... so investigations along that line.
    Any help would be appreciated :)
     
  2. Check out BEAM - Be A Mathematician and Nrich, they both have lots of problem solving and puzzle type resources.
    www.nrich.maths.org - loads of problems which could be done as whole class, group or individual challenges, all graded according to level of ability and difficulty.
    www.beam.co.uk - look at their free resources, particularly good for games which could be used independently and as extension work.
    Just discovered these myself on my hunt for challenges to extend learning and thought they were both excellent sites.
