Everyday Math Book 1: Stimulating word problems for junior primary students
 
 
The activities in this blackline masters book are designed to present real-life problems in a realistic context so as to provide children with situations in which everyday maths comprehension skills are required. The tasks also provide a foundation for the development of problem solving skills and strategies. The activities are based around a set of recurring characters who find themselves exposed to a range of real-life problems that need to be solved; the sort of problems that students may one day encounter. Many of the activities can be described as maths comprehension questions where students are presented with the facts and need to determine ways to manipulate them in order to solve the problem. Ideally the pages should be completed in order as several of the activities are related. Activities with two parts must be completed together as the information from one page will be required when working on the second page. Photocopy these back and front. Many pages also include a challenge activity which is often an extension of the main problem. Included at the end of the book are a list of brain-teasers that explore lateral and rational thinking. The answer is usually not as obvious as it looks. The ten brain-teasers can be photocopied and individually glued on to card so as to create a set. Students might like to think up their own brain-teasers to add to the set.
