Scholastic Teacher Bookshop provides a wonderful range of titles reflecting current issues in education as well as the most popular primary curriculum areas. Teachers can browse through 'The Bookshop' and choose those titles that meet their particular needs and/or take their fancy| The varied format of titles in this series enables subjects to be covered in a way that is most appropriate to the content. Problem-solving is about making decisions. It is about choosing how to approach a challenge and searching for a method to work through it, adapting and developing as you go. This book provides both the starting points for setting interesting primary maths problems and signposts to routes through to the solutions. The book is aimed at teachers of children aged from 6/7 to 11+. It outlines the value of mathematical problem solving - both for the teacher and the child - and then supports the teacher in finding and presenting suitable problems. It is the nature of problem solving in maths that the method used can significantly alter the difficulty of a problem; for example, using practical apparatus versus a mental method where only the outcomes are noted down. Therefore, problems in this book are levelled as 'Easy' to 'Expert', rather than by any curriculum reference. This also makes the book universally appropriate to any UK primary maths curriculum (though examples from the NNS and Scottish 5-14 Guidelines are highlighted to show that suitable challenges abound in the published curriculum). Nor are the problems in this book in any context. They are not 'real-life' problems, but questions about the properties of numbers and shape to be explored, discussed and extended.
