Part, part wholes – representing problems


Understanding questions and word problems in Maths is a really important skill. Understanding the question being asked helps us to see what calculations we need to do to solve the problem.



Here are some questions and word problems with a difference – you have been given ALL the numbers you need (including the ‘answers’!). Your challenge is to put each number in the right place on the part-part-whole and bar models, and label each part of the diagram, to show you understand the problem and how the numbers relate to each other.
