To ensure all children are problem solvers.

To consider the importance and development of a simple KS 1 problem solving tool kit

To examine all five problem solving types

To demonstrate how you can make every lesson a problem solving lesson

To show why it is important to give children a range of problem solving experiences.

During this course, delegates will have the opportunity to solve some short mathematical problems and consider the skills and strategies needed to solve them. Young children need access to a range of problems including problems using everyday contexts and/or resources, e.g. money related word problems and packs of pencils or balloons sold in packs.
