    Are there any schools out there who have truly cracked reasoning and problem solving in maths? It is a real focus from our SLT this year and it would be great to hear if anyone has really nailed it? We seem to be scratching the surface and not much more!
    Any ideas?

    :confused: I think its daft, its not something you systematically progress through, its impossible to assess or structure, its not learning you build on towards something. It has very limited value in education in my opinion

    Teach formal procedures then take pupils through increasingly complicated word problems.
