Let's warm those brains up this morning! Have a look at the two problems below and have a go at solving them smiley

Maths - Problem Solving

 

Today we are going to have a look at some problem solving skills today and strategies that can help us to tackle different problems. 

 

Have a watch of the two videos below and have a go at the questions as the videos are playing (remember to pause it when it tells you to, to give you the time to work it out).
