This fun Key Stage 2 maths lesson starter gets pupils to use their mathematical ability to work out if so called 'special offers' are in fact good deals.
Fictional Chief Inspector, Hector Nector, has been doing undercover filming of local conman Dodgy Dave, who is cheating customers with his not-so-special offers.
Dodgy Dave is offering five pairs of socks for #4 instead of one pair at 75p, a 20 per cent discount on t-shirts, and a free pair of sunglasses when you buy three.
The made-up scenarios encourage class discussion and prompts pupils to decide whether his deals are good value or not.
This video is part of the Key Stage 2 maths lesson planning pack on problem-solving, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
