Year 6 Maths Reasoning Problems - a problem a day!

Range of word problems that incorporate 2-step and multi-step challenges.
There are 15 word problems in total (duplicated on the page 2-4 times so that they can easily be cut up and given out).

A good resource for setting homework on a ‘problem a day’ basis or acting as an extension task if you want to laminate them and put them in a pot (this is what I do).

Problems range from:

  • area

  • algebra

  • difference

  • money

  • fractions

  • percentages

  • ratio

    Problems are also good for class discussion and promoting reasoning/understanding skills.
    Answers are included at back of document for ease of marking and immediate feedback.
