Maths Problems Solving

’ Maddy Barnes, assistant head and English consultant, explains why every school needs the Teacher’s Moderation Toolkit “I can’t imagine not using it now” We have been using the Moderation Toolkit for almost a full academic year and cannot imagine assessing children’s writing without it.

The Teacher’s Moderation Toolkit consists of termly exemplification materials for Y1-6.

Suppose you're told that Shelby earns "time and a half" for any hours she works over forty for a given week.

You would be expected to know that "time and a half" means dollars for every over-time hour.

Some math problem solving strategies will be considered here.

Study them carefully so you know how to use them to solve other math problems.

You'll also be expected to know that "perimeter" indicates the length around the outside of a flat shape such as a rectangle (so you'll probably be adding lengths) and that "area" indicates the size of the insides of the flat shape (so you'll probably be multiplying length by width, or applying some other formula).

And "volume" is the insides of a three-dimensional shape, such as a cube or sphere (so you'll probably be multiplying).

You'll be expected to know that a "dozen" is twelve; you may be expected to know that a "score" is twenty.

You'll be expected to know the number of days in a year, the number of hours in a day, and other basic units of measure.
