Problem Solving

Problem solving is an important part of mathematics! This is when we use the skills we have to solve problems.

Year 3 were presented with a number of challenges that they had to solve as a team. 


  1. First they explored and discussed the problem
  2. Next they used trial and error to find a strategy 
  3. Finally they used the strategy and reflected on the solution.


They were very pleased to discover that by persevering and discussing the problems they could effectively find an answer.
