Over the past week we have had an added focus on Maths with a particular emphasis on ‘Problem Solving’. All classes engaged in our daily problem solving challenges and these are published on our school website. The problems/challenges vary in degree of difficulty to prompt your child’s problem-solving and thinking skills. We hope that you will find this to be another useful way of engaging your child with Maths in a broad and thought-provoking way that is not restricted to the classroom or textbook. The following websites are well worth checking out:
- Maths Playground: Free, online math games, problem solving, logic games and number puzzles.
- nrich: This website provides rich problem solving activities for primary pupils.
- Maths Week Ireland: The Resources section of the website contains a wealth of fun, challenging puzzles, activities and games for all ages.
