Problem solving in maths

Problem Solving


At The Wilfred Owen School we recognise the importance of teaching children the seven problem solving skills; trial and improvement, working systematically, pattern spotting, working backwards, reasoning logically, visualising and conjecturing. Therefore we integrate the skills into our maths lessons every week. Our teachers identify a skill to focus on and explore a range of progressive problems during that week.
