Maths: Word Problems

In Maths Groups this term we are focusing on solving multi-step word problems, with a focus on the Maths Olympiad.

Some students have already worked through entire books of Maths Olympiad Practice questions, so I am looking for other fun and increasingly challenging activities for them to work through.

Solve-it has a variety of online word-based problems that increase in difficulty.

IXL Word-math problems.
