This Week in Maths – Bar Modelling

Friday 21st July | Comments are off for this post

This week in maths, we have really focused our attention onto problem solving and using a technique known as the bar model to help us solve complex problems including a 2012 GCSE maths paper.

2012 Higher GCSE Paper:

Ralph posts 40 letters, some of which are first class, and some are second.

He posts four times as many second class letters as first.

How many of each class of letter does he post?



The children learned how to use two or more bars in different ways to solve complex multi-step problems.
