Meet Maisie, the marvellous mathematical mule. Follow Maisie as she leads young mathematicians through a series of beautifully illustrated and animated maths problems. Maisie introduces the relevant knowledge young mathematicians will need to move from novice problem solver to being expert problem solvers.
By starting with addition problems and moving gently through to subtraction problems, Maisie’s fantastic photo album will enchant young learners as they build confidence in solving the maths problems set by her mischievous friends.
Use the animated characters to inspire discussion with your young mathematicians and see them start to build up their knowledge of the different types of maths problems and the language used to describe them. So when they meet a new problem, they, like expert problem solvers, can think about what else they have seen that’s similar and use the appropriate language to describe the problem.
