These worksheets of math problems have been written and presented to suit a range of abilities and ways of thinking and learning in primary school. Problem solving is an important part of the mathematics curriculum and these sheets have been designed to help students become familiar with, and put into practice, a range of problem solving techniques.
The strategies which these sheets encourage students to use and develop are: guess and check, looking for patterns, drawing pictures and modelling objects, listing and eliminating possibilities, filling in grids, using timelines and making assumptions and estimates and judging the reasonableness of them. The problems
are also designed to highlight the importance of reading mathematical language carefully.
The Brain Buster problems include more difficult mathematical problems.
