Problem Solving Tasks

The Spode Group produced a number of resources to support problem solving in mathematics through real life problems. Some of the resources were produced to support the C.S.E. syllabus and others were written at the time mathematics teachers were preparing for coursework to become a compulsary part of the assessment of mathematics at GCSE level.

The resources contain a wide range of open-ended tasks, practical tasks, investigations and real life problems still useful today to place the mathematics learnt in the classroom into a real world context.
