## Maths Problem Solving At KS2: Strategies and Resources For Primary School Teachers

## John Dabell

## Ofsted’s view on problem solving in the Maths curriculum

## The context around KS2 problem solving

- Problems do not have to be set in real-life contexts, beware pseudo contexts.
- Providing a range of puzzles and other problems helps pupils to reason strategically to approach problems, sequence unfolding solutions, and use recording to help their thinking for next steps.
- It is particularly important that teachers and TAs stress reasoning, rather than just checking whether the final answer is correct.
- Pupils of all ability need to learn how to solve problems – not just the high attainers or fastest workers.

## The Ultimate Guide to Problem Solving Techniques

9 ready-to-go problem solving techniques with accompanying tasks to get KS2 reasoning independently

## How to approach KS2 maths problems

- Set problems as part of learning in all topics for all pupils.
- Vary the ways in which you pose problems.
- Try to resist prompting pupils too soon and focusing on getting ‘the answer’ – pupils need to build their confidence, skills and resilience in solving problems, so that they can apply them naturally in other situations.
- Make sure you discuss alternative approaches with pupils to help develop their reasoning.
- Ensure that problems for high attainers involve demanding reasoning and problem-solving skills, not just harder numbers.

## Models for approaching KS2 problem solving

## What’s included in the guide?

## Cognitive Activation: getting KS2 pupils in the lightbulb zone

- Giving pupils Maths problems that require them to think for an extended time.
- Asking pupils to use their own procedures for solving complex problems.
- Creating a learning community where pupils are able to make mistakes.
- Asking pupils to explain how they solved a problem and why they choose that method.
- Presenting pupils with problems in different contexts and ask them to apply what they have learned to new contexts.
- Giving pupils problems with no immediately obvious method of solution or multiple solutions.
- Encouraging pupils to reflect on problems.
