Maths lesson resource pack focusing on breaking down the problem solving process. Suitable for years 4-6. Incudes detailed lesson plan with suggestions how to use the powerpoint and the activity sheets. The word problems are grouped by operation with a separate set of multi step problems. They ar More…e also grouped by difficulty with questions for LAPs, APs and HAPs. I copied these questions on different coloured paper and cut them up and children selected one at a time, using the RUCSAC method to solve them. There is also a WILF grid or grid for self assessment using the lesson success criteria.
