Go Further with Investigations

The third book in the Investigations series from Spectrum Maths was aimed at students in the upper stages of primary schools who were working at levels three to six. Each of the forty investigations has a teachers’ page followed by the student sheet. The information for the teacher includes the National Curriculum level and Attainment Target as well as any apparatus required. The investigations cover addition, multiplication, place value, number and shape patterns, polygons, area and perimeter. The material is flexible in terms of organisation and can be used for: *Individual investigations: students working individually on their own particular investigation. *Small group investigations: the class divided into groups, each group working on a different investigation. *School investigation: several classes working on the same investigation. This enables teachers to discuss and compare experiences amongst each other. It could also lead to combined work displays.
