Have you ever struggled teaching a students how to solve word problems? Have you watched a student sit hopelessly confused in front of a string a words and numbers trying random combinations of operations or giving up entirely? If yes then this is the workshop for you! A strategy to help students develop into problem solvers will be shared. This can help students think deeply about situations with complex problems, judging for themselves what those problems could be, and evaluating the relevance of the data associated with these situations.

Primary school teachers will be equipped with a strategy to help their students engage with, enjoy and understand word problems allowing for differentiation at the same time.
