Finding All Possibilities Progression and Activities

Do you remember the problem solving materials that were produced looking at the progression in finding all possibilies problems?

 

Here is the document I produced to support teachers with developing the skills neededs to solve finding all possibilities problems. If you click on the picture, you will access the full document, however the hyperlinks won’t work.

To download the zipfile, click here (Mediafire) or here (4share):

If you do download the zipfile, be patient it takes a while. You will need to unzip it, open the folder and locate the word document: LT Finding All Possibilities 1. Everything hyperlinks from there.

I have attached a step by step guide for unzipping the folder. click here

Coordinate grids

These next activities are very popular with my class. I began by using them as ‘information gap’ or ‘mystery’ activities, where children worked in pairs or small groups sharing clues and solving the problems together. I have moved over the year to children solving them individually as they have solved them so many times. Hope you like them. Again, like the nicknames problems, we have revisited these problems in lots of different contexts to fit in with the different cross curriculat themes. They lend themselves to shape, space and measure objectives. I have used all of these with my year 4 class this year.

Instructions.

  1. Children cut up the pictures to be sorted onto grid. My class have found it helpful to put their initials on the back of each picture.
  2. Read through all the clues.
  3. Where a clue tells you exactly where a picture is to be placed, place it there.
  4. Tick off the clues as you solve then.
  5. When puzzle is solved, make sure solution fits all the clues.
