*You will see that each strategy we have in our list is really only a summary of two or more others.1 Guess This stands for two strategies, guess and check and guess and improve. This is a strategy that would certainly work on the Farmyard problem but it could take a lot of time and a lot of computation.*

*You will see that each strategy we have in our list is really only a summary of two or more others.1 Guess This stands for two strategies, guess and check and guess and improve. This is a strategy that would certainly work on the Farmyard problem but it could take a lot of time and a lot of computation.*Because it is such a simple strategy to use, you may have difficulty weaning some children away from guess and check.This includes children themselves, hence the link between Act it Out and Use Equipment.

We have found that this kind of poster provides good revision for children. Through these links, children can see that mathematics is not only connected by skills but also by processes.

We now look at each of the following strategies and discuss them in some depth. If they can also check that the guess fits the conditions of the problem, then they have mastered guess and check.

On the other hand, it can also be cumbersome when used by groups, especially if a largish number of students is involved.

We have, however, found it a useful strategy when students have had trouble coming to grips with a problem.

Guess and improve is slightly more sophisticated than guess and check.

The idea is that you use your first incorrect guess to make an improved next guess. In relatively straightforward problems like that, it is often fairly easy to see how to improve the last guess. Children themselves take the role of things in the problem.

In our experience, children need to be encouraged and helped to use equipment. This may be because it gives them a better representation of the problem in hand.

Also, if they’re a little older, they may feel that using equipment is only 'for babies'.

In this site we have linked the problem solving lessons to the following groupings of problem solving strategies.

As the site develops we may add some more but we have tried to keep things simple for now.
