Working Backwards in Maths

Today, in order to explore problems that require working backwards, Year 6 played a game called Nim. They had to work strategically and try to plan ahead in order to work out what moves to make to win the game and force their partner to lose. The class were excellent at suggesting strategies and testing whether or not these worked. They rose to the challenge each time we made the game more difficult. Next week, we’ll apply these skills to some written word problems.
