LO: I can problem solve with fractions of amounts.


Today we are looking at problems that you will use the same methods as before.

You need to remember to read the questions and highlight the important information and then use the methods of bar modelling with the counters to work out the answers. 


We use the 3 questions to help us 

1. What do we notice? 

2. What do we already know? 

3. What do we need to do first?


I have completed an example for you if you need a little reminder first. 

Example of the first problem solving question.
