The Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium Second Edition - more worded problems your children will love!

Following the huge success last year of the original Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium the Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium Second Edition is packed with even more problem-solving puzzles that put maths into real-life contexts.

The Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium Second Edition contains over 40 puzzles, provided in easy to print pdf format.  All the puzzles are differentiated at two to four different levels and cover areas as diverse as:

large numbers 
converting units 
scale drawings 
time (including converting units of time) 

Created by a teacher with over 20 years of experience, the Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium Second Edition is bound to enthuse your children in their work. The questions are closely modelled on the ones your children will face in the SATs, but this is not a collection of tedious worksheets… These are fun challenges! Which child wouldn’t like to help Mondrian create his masterpieces, work out how long it is going to take an expedition to climb Everest, save Orangutans’ habitat or help scientists calculate which parts of the Arctic Ice Cap are melting fastest?

We all want our children to be independent learners and the Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium Second Edition is ideal for this… Because the answers are all on the sheet! However, there are some red herrings, so the children have to work out the maths to find the “errors”. Why wait until you have marked their work for your children to know if they are getting their work correct? If the answer isn’t on the sheet, they immediately know they are wrong - and then they can independently find help, whilst your marking can focus on the next steps they need to increase their reasoning skills even further!

The Worded Problems Puzzle Compendium Second Edition costs a BARGAIN £50, including a site licence, so you can enthuse your children throughout your school.  We are so confident that you will like the puzzles that we have even given you some FREE ONES to download - just click on the documents below...
