Our discussion problems are great for allowing children to discuss their methods of working out and the answers they get with a partner or small group, which enables them to develop their reasoning and problem-solving skills. Use this Year 2 Find the Whole Discussion Problem to get your children doing exactly that with fractions.
As these questions are much trickier and require deeper thinking than your standard question, we recommend our varied fluency and reasoning and problem-solving worksheets are used before this one to ensure children have a strong foundation of knowledge to build upon.
