In fourth class, problem solving is a challenging area in maths. We have started to work on trickier problem solving sums in class and we will be doing a lot of work on them in class to improve our problem solving skills. I will start to send home some problem solving questions for homework too so that the girls are getting plenty of opportunity to practice them 

There are also some good questions that you can do at home if you follow this link https://ie.ixl.com/math/class-4 and scroll down to mixed operations. Start at F1 and work down through the questions. They get harder as you work your way towards F9

The more practice we do, the better we will get at them 🙂
