Barvember

Have you heard of Barvember?
 
Barvember is a month dedicated to bar models. We use bar models in maths. They are very helpful and simple diagrams which help the children to solve maths problems. The children are taught how to read bar models and also how to draw their own. They're very handy for solving addition problems, or finding missing numbers, or calculating multiplication and division problems.
 
So parents and carers, would you like to try some bar models? Below are some bar model problems which you can download and have a think about yourself!
