Welcome to Maths Builder Problem Solving. This resource is a series of PowerPoint slides designed to be used each day as a warm up activity to introduce, practise, embed, extend and master skills and concepts within maths.
The slides within this pack support the children in practicing problem solving within a multi-step approach, as well as single step questions. It uses the contexts of negative numbers, missing numbers within a context (shape) number recognition within a problem, four operations to solve extended problems, grouping and sorting of numbers (classification) and using scales to change from one measure to another.
INSPIReducation have used all of the resources from the Maths Builder range within the classroom and have seen a huge impact in the development of mathematical skills, and as a result, a deepening of maths understanding as well as confidence in the areas focused upon.
Because these resources are designed to be a short, daily activity, children can't forget skills and concepts taught to them weeks before. Instead, regular "reviews" using Maths Builder, keeps the skills and concepts fresh in the minds of young learners. It allow the children to see links between different areas, particularly as these activities can be linked to the topics of the day, and warm the children up to maths before the main objective of the lesson. It prepares them well for the speed of assessment tasks and supports revision.
The resources have also been designed to make life easy for the busy teacher. Once used, it takes minutes to review each slide, keep the main element the same, but change the numbers the children are dealing with. You therefore know that you are fully resourced and prepared for your next lesson, targeting specifically on the needs of the children within your group. Once purchased, you can use this resource over and over again, and see the impact immediately on the learners in your care.
Please see the preview to find out what this resource includes. We hope you purchase and enjoy using a wide range of activities from the Maths Builder range - devised by INSPIReducation.
