The FMSP Central Team has chosen six mathematical problems to display as posters. The aim of the posters is to engage students in problem solving and extend the mathematical ideas and approaches they encounter at GCSE.
Hint: Use geometrical reasoning to consider the areas of triangles and parallelograms.
Hint: A diagram will be very useful!
You will also find other GCSE level problems along with prompts and worked solutions on the GCSE Problem Solving page.
The Year 10 Maths Feast Competition Materials provide a fantastic resource for developing problem solving skills in mathematics.
The NRICH website has an abundance of interesting mathematical problems at a range of different levels of challenge.
Schools and Colleges can submit an online request to register with the Further Mathematics Support Programme. It is free to do so and there are many benefits.
