Problem solving questions using surds, they need to be applied and used. For top end KS4 students or AS level students.

Just a simple worksheet I created to extend all pupils into reasoning when rounding numbers to the nearest 10,100 & 1000. I have taken ideas from WhiteRose resources and laid them out into F (Fluency), R (Reasoning) and PS (Problem solving). Could be used as a teaching resource or assessment on the objective.

This worksheet is part of our November resources competition. This worksheet provides 8 problem solving questions involving co-ordinates.
Remember to submit your own resource for your chance to win a prize in our November resource competition. More details can be found here.

Multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting fractions mastery lesson including problem solving from nrich.
If there are any mistakes on the answers, let me know and I can update.
Thanks

Lots of differentiated practical worksheets, task cards, and activities to cover the following (2014) objective: Read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1000000 and determine the value of each digit.
Includes problems and reasoning for deeper learning and understanding.
Thank you for downloading. ***Please look for the large files (Flip -chart and PDF) which contain all the resources without the Paws & Clause watermark.*** PLEASE NOTE: The resources come in the format of an Activeinspire Promethean Flipchart and a non-editable PDF document. Thank you for downloading. PLEASE NOTE: If you require the resource in a different font or the numbers presented with commas please send me a request. Thank you.

Within this unit of work, students will learn how to apply the concepts of computational thinking to a range of different problem solving puzzles. The resource is split into four sections;
1. Computational thinking puzzles - a range of different types of puzzles which encourage students to apply the concepts of computational thinking to solve them. Puzzles include mazes, word ladders and even a game of draughts (or checkers)!
2. Logic Gates - students will need to solve the logic gate puzzles to identify if the output is on (1) or off (0) dependent on the gate sequences. This also helps develop Boolean decision making through the use of AND, OR & NOT gates which produce a TRUE (1) or FALSE (0) output.
3. Flowchart puzzles - students need to work out the correct answers to the questions asked dependent on the input information and the flowchart conditions set. Flowcharts include the use of algebra variables which can help support mathematics students.
4. Pseudo code puzzles - students need to read through the pseudo code algorithms and demonstrate their understanding by answering the questions asked. Pseudo code sequences include the use of algebra variables which can help support mathematics students.
Each puzzle is given a score. Once complete students check their answers and work out their overall scores and place them in the grid provided. They then compare this with the overall levels to find their overall level: Rookie, Pro or Beast! This can then be used within assessment to see if students are performing at, below or above expected levels.
Pack includes a student PowerPoint resource to complete and answers for each puzzle.

Two statements that can be found in almost any math curriculum are:
Students learn best if they are actively involved in their learning.
Students should be able to apply various strategies to solve problems.
This problem solving unit covering “Solve a Simpler Problem” is one of 9 units focusing on 8 problem solving strategies plus a series of Mixed Problems in which students decide on the most appropriate strategy to solve each problem.
The colorful graphics in each unit are specially designed to interest and motivate students to try the problems.
Each unit comprises a Tutorial, a Worked Example and 6 colorful, motivational problems in which students are encouraged to apply the newly learned strategy.
All problems come with on screen hints and solutions.

Problem Solving: Key Words to Solve Math Story Problems: This is a set of color coded math key word cards for all levels. This set contains addition, subtraction, multiplication and division key words that often indicate which operation you will use to unlock math story problems.
************************************************************************* PLEASE NOTE The use of the "keyword" method cannot successfully stand on its own. It must be coupled with good instruction in the reading and comprehension of word problems and student guidance. This pack does not contain any math story problems.
**************************************************************************
To make the key word cards simply follow the instructions that are included. You may use only those words that are familiar to your students or you may choose to have all of them in a handy key set. This will surely help to get them more comfortable with the vocabulary associated with each mathematical operation.

A complete lesson of more challenging problems involving the sine rule.
Designed to come after pupils have spent time on basic questions.
Mistake on previous version now corrected - please contact me for an updated copy if you have already purchased this.
Activities included:
Starter:
A set of six questions, each giving different combinations of angles and sides. Pupils have to decide which questions can be done with the sine rule. In fact they all can, the point being that questions aren’t always presented in the basic ‘opposite pairs’ format. Pupils can then answer these questions, to check they can correctly apply the sine rule.
Main:
A set of eight more challenging questions that pupils could work on in pairs. Each one is unique, with no examples offered, and therefore I’d class this as a problem solving lesson - pupils may need to adopt a general approach of working out what they can at first, and seeing where this takes them. Questions also require knowledge from other topics including angle rules, shape properties, bearings, and the sine graph. I’ve provided full worked answers FYI, but I would get pupils discussing answers and presenting to the class.
Plenary:
A prompt for pupils to reflect on possible rounding errors. Most of the questions have several steps, so it is worth getting pupils to think about how to avoid rounding errors.
I’ve left each question as a full slide, but I’d print them 4-on-1 and 2-sided, so that you’d only need to print one worksheet per pair.
Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Equation lessons differentiated for higher, middle and lower learners, with fluency reasoning and problem solving questions for each group.

The Lesson has been written by an Outstanding Teacher/Leader from Outstanding School, specialist in Mathematical Mastery.
2 Power Point Presentation.
Interactive Slides that are very visual, allowing for students to discover and make the connections.
Lessons written for Mastery and Understanding.
Great images to draw understanding of fractions, a topic that is hard to get through to students. The images and carefully thought through slides are badly needed for students to understand this topic.
Questions to make students think and understand and assess before moving on.
Assessment questions included to check on understanding.
Challenge Questions included.
Presentation on: Problem Solving and Fractions. (Contains 19 slides in total)
I have put down how many slides each PowerPoint contains as the preview slides do not do the resources justice that it deserves.
Kindly review the resource once you have purchased it. Thank you in advance.

A worksheet to help children spot patterns and problem solve, ideal for SEN, ASD

Three problem solving resources with answers included. The mysteries include 'Who Stole the Fidget Spinner', 'Who Stole the Football Cup' and finding the antidote to survive a zombie apocalypse in school (with survivor certificates). These are also good end of term revision resources. The problems involve use of a range of decoding strategies and number skills (such as multiplication, division, addition, subtraction). Children all also use knowledge of place value, fractions and solve worded problems.

This resource has resources to help teach solving simple time problems in a practical context. The problems include comparing duration of events and the use of time vocabulary.
It contains:
12 illustrated problem solving cards
Passing of time worksheet
Bedtime problem worksheet
Problem solving TV programmes worksheets
This resource pack will be most relevant to teachers, trainee teachers and home educators.
