At the moment in Maths we are learning to use what we have learned to problem solve.
See downloads below for a selection of addition and subtraction word problems. Choose a level of challenge appropriate for you.
Problem to solve:
On the planet Vuv there are two sorts of creatures. The Zios have 3 legs and the Zepts have 7 legs.
The great planetary explorer Nico, who first discovered the planet, saw a crowd of Zios and Zepts. He managed to see that there was more than one of each kind of creature before they saw him. Suddenly they all rolled over onto their backs and put their legs in the air.
He counted 52 legs. How many Zios and how many Zepts were there?
Do you think there are any different answers? How many different answers can you think of?
