Reasoning and problem solving is an important part of the Year 1 curriculum, and we pride ourselves on having some of the best resources available anywhere. With over 50 sets of pages in Year 1 alone, there is plenty to challenge children’s mathematical thinking and encourage them to work in a logical and methodical way.
To make it easier to find the type of resource you are looking for we have sub-divided this category as follows:
• Reasoning about number, sorting and counting
To build on the work done in Early Years children need to sort groups in various ways before counting the objects within the groups. Two new sets available this week.
• Making number sentences and using number cards
Children will be asked to find different ways of making numbers using addition and subtraction, including a new set on Making 8. Number cards are an excellent resource in the classroom for this type of activity.
• Reasoning about money
Using coins is a great way to explore different ways of making amounts. The later pages on shopping require logical thinking and children should be able to explain verbally or on paper how they reached their answers.
• Reasoning about addition and subtraction
Plenty of opportunity to select numbers and add and subtract to reach totals. Finding all the possible combinations can be an important part of these activities and we have a brand new set on, “How many ways?”
• More reasoning activities
More activities to challenge children’s reasoning and logical thinking. Plenty of, ‘How many ways ….’ activities.
