Problem-Solving Language

Description

This great lesson idea on problem-solving for Key Stage 2 maths pupils, uses a sorting activity to illustrate the principle.

Tracy Stuart, a Year 5 teacher at Ripple Primary School in Barking, believes the biggest problem her pupils have with this subject is working out which operation to use when reading a problem.

She has designed this lesson to help her pupils develop their understanding of how the language of a problem relates to a particular mathematical operation.

Working in small groups, the pupils have to sort words and phrases, deciding which operation the words relate to - addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.

Once the pupils have completed the sorting they then work on creating their own word problems.

This video is part of the Lesson Planning Pack on problem-solving at Key Stage 2 maths, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
