Since the White Rose Maths Hub began creating questions for Diagnostic Questions just a few months ago, there have been 337,221 answers given by primary school students all over the country. Perhaps more importantly, 116,437 of these answers have been incorrect.
So, with SATs on the horizon, we thought it would be a perfect time to reflect on five areas of mathematics that have proved particularly troubling to Key Stage 2 students. The five key areas are:
- Area and perimeter
- Equivalent fractions and fractions of an amount
- Factors and multiples
For each of these areas we have provided some supporting resources that you could use with your classes to help overcome these difficulties, together with a mini 5 question quiz you could give your students to see if their misconceptions have been resolved.
Great resource with great questions but please check the question for fractions of amounts - one question says he has £300 to spend on the party and how much is left. It comes to £320 so there is no money left. Please check
