Word problems in the KS2 Reasoning SAT Papers

Word problemsWord problems in the KS2 Reasoning SAT Papers

The new style KS2 SAT Reasoning Papers cover all aspects of maths, including calculating, but the questions on calculations are usually in the form of word problems. Children do find these harder than carrying out a straightforward number calculation, as they have to work out what to do, as well as having to carry out the calculation correctly. We have just published a set of tricky 2-step word problems similar to those found in recent papers. Two distinct calculations have to be made to get to the answer and a mark is usually available for the correct method even if the calculation itself is not correct. These provide excellent practice and if children can master these they will have nothing to worry about in the tests!
