Free Y4 maths worksheets: Choose the operation and method

using maths graphicThese two maths worksheets are concerned with getting children to make decisions about:

Which operation is involved in word problems

Whether calculations should be done mentally or with pen and paper.

How to explain and record the operations used in solving the problem.

They focus on examples and draw children’s attention to these issues, but it is important to realise that these decisions should be taken by children in most things they do in mathematics, so encourage them to discuss their work wherever possible. Often there is no one right way to tackle a problem, but usually there is a most efficient way which is what they should be looking for.
