Reasoning - Problem Solving - Number Puzzles (KS1) and Shape Problems (KS2) - March 14th
Here are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 children have to solve two number puzzles. The first one involves simple operations. The second problem involves fractions. Although the second problem seems quite simple it will tease out lots of misconceptions.

At KS2 children have to reason and problem solve with two shape problems. The first one involves working out the length of a square given the area and the second problem requires a little bar modelling, algebra or trialand error.

Every day in March the White Rose Maths Hub is aiming to put out a question of the day.

Tweet us @WRMathsHub a picture of your children's answers for a chance to win a prize. We had nearly 50 entries last week.
