Maths Problem Solving, Year 1 is the first book in a six-book series that has been written for teachers to use during the numeracy lesson. The sheets provide opportunities for making decisions, reasoning about numbers and shapes, solving real life problems and organizing and using data. Differentiated sheets makes it easy to use the sheets in a mixed-ability classroom. The length of the problems are varied with short, medium and more extended problems for children to solve. The problems on each page are mixed so the children do not assume that the solution process is the same each time, but have to understand the problem. They are varied in their complexity and are presented in a meaningful, age-appropriate manner with topics the children will find relevant.
