Key Stage 2 Problem Solving is a series of graded activity books helping children to sharpen their mathematical skills.
It encourages them to apply their maths skills to a range of 'real-life' situations, such as shopping and keeping score in games.
The books provide explanations and examples of all 11 question types, together with 'how to' instructions and workbook-style activities to consolidate learning.
Problem solving is the process of applying prior knowledge, experience, skills, and understandings to new and unfamiliar situations in order to complete tasks, make decisions, or achieve goals.
In the mathematics program, problem-solving situations can provide the meaningful and exciting experiences through which students learn concepts and skills.
Strong connections between home and school are needed to ensure that parents and teachers are working together to advance the mathematical development of children.
These connections can be established through effective and varied communications with parents/guardians.
