Discussion in 'Primary' started by WRMaths, Mar 1, 2016.

Quite a few schools across our region have asked us to support them with problem solving and reasoning questions. We have decided to make a problem of the day for march (that are posted on our TES resources page) and if schools tweet @WRMathsHub their children's solution they get entered in a weekly prize draw.

Please feel free to use them if you want. Also on there are our Bar Modelling weekly resources too.

Thank you so much for these - they are brilliant and the children are loving them. Another fantastic resource from WRMH...

Just to let people know that we have now collated all of the problems for March into one document with some notes, guidance and answers. Thanks to all those that participated on Twitter by sending us their student responses. Look out for other resources and materials over the coming months. If you have any suggestions as to what you would like let us know.

These questions will be great for some reasoning revision leading up to the SATs. Thank you!

Problem solving

Sam says 99.5% of children have above average number of fingers.
Katie says that 99.5% of children have the average number of fingers.

Who do you think is right and why?

(demonstrates understanding of mean, median and mode. And why you should always say which average you are using)
