Description: By the time students reach Year 5 they are all more than capable of using the main Maths operations – adding, multiplying, dividing and subtracting. However, applying these methods to complex problems can often prove to be more than tricky. Reading the Maths problems carefully and knowing how to interpret what is being asked is a key skill in Maths and is not only valuable for GATE preparation but also in everyday Maths in school. The GATE exam and is only word problems and there will be many multi-step problems to work through at speed. It is important that students can read the questions and understand what Maths operations to use quickly. The Maths Workshops cover problem solving skills and strategies for best tackling those tricky wording issues.
