The tasks in this feature have been designed to encourage learners to be curious about different routes to a solution.

The tasks in this feature have been designed to encourage learners to be curious about different routes to a solution. By sharing and discussing alternative approaches, children will begin to develop a 'toolkit' of methods so they can make more informed decisions about which approach to take on a future occasion.

Giving learners the chance to reflect on their problem solving in this way will help them become more resilient problem solvers and to value the problem-solving journey, not just the answer.
