 30 Measurement and Geometry cards, plus answers
 30 Statistics and Chance cards, plus answers
The front of each card has a mathematics word problem for pupils to solve and the reverse of each card has an extension activity for more able pupils. The problems involve one or several steps, require the use of a variety of strategies and skills and are supported by colourful artwork.
The features of the ProblemSolving boxes include:
 Excellent resources to support problemsolving, an essential component of the maths curriculum;
 Varied, reallife and challenging problems;

What I like  colourful, interesting, relevant, challenging, 1 step and multiple step problems, extension on the back of each card (So 1 pack – 30 cards but 60 problems!), plus answer card for children to self correct. ~ How I’ll Use them in the Classroom ~ Station Teaching! I will do station teaching in Maths twice a week with 5th class. During this time, one group will work on the problem solving cards. I think this will be a fantastic way for children to solve one step and multiple step word problems. The children can work independently or in pairs to solve the problems and at the end of the station they can correct their work with the answer cards. I think this will be a great way for children to develop their problem solving skills and open a discussion into problem solving in Maths in my classroom. If the children find a problem too tricky – we will work through it together as a class after the station teaching. ~ Extension Work ~ I will also keep a set available for extension work for early finishers. http://irishprimaryteacher.ie/primedproblemsolvingstrategiesandskillsmathscards/
