Maths Problems and Investigations, 7 - 9 Year Olds by Greg Purcell

Maths Problems and Investigations is a three-book series of reproducible problem-solving activities for use in primary schools. The books gradually increase in difficulty as you progress through the series. Activities engage pupils in problem solving across a wide range of mathematical operations so it is easy to integrate them into your lessons. Each page provides differentiated activities at three levels, making it easy to use them in mixed ability classes. The activities help children to develop, reinforce and consolidate their problem solving skills. For each activity children will need to: read the problem; identify relevant information; select appropriate strategies; solve the problem and check the reasonableness of their strategies. Each page has a focus, ranging from sports, shopping and jobs to cooking, travel and building - providing real-life problems for children to solve.
