Maths of the Day – How to win at maths

Welcome to GBA’s Maths of the Day – teaching our students how to win at maths!
Ask any child what their least favourite part of maths is, and I guarantee they will say “Multi-step word problems” or “Reasoning”.
Most children are able to grasp basic arithmetic but, when it comes to putting these questions into a word problem, they panic and don’t know where to start or which calculation to do.  In my experience, it is all about teaching children to break the wording down into key information and then work through methodically.
Using the Women’s Football Euro 2022 as a theme, Ali has recorded a number of free, quick and engaging maths lessons to provide guidance on how to become a word problem master!
