In Year 5 we have been learning how to solve tricky problems in Maths by using a variety of different strategies. The strategy we focused on this week was ‘Act it Out’, which involves children using objects to physically act out the problem and record the solution. It’s very similar to the strategy ‘Guess and Check’!
These problems were hard, but when we used our problem solving process we were able to solve them!
