This term, all the children in the school have been using a character called Reasoning Ralf in order to get better at mathematics.
Ralf helps the children answer questions where they have to use their reasoning or problem-solving skills. Ralf gives the children a set of steps to follow and encourages them to label their work with drawings, annotations and jottings to help solve a challenging problem.
Lily said, “Reasoning Ralf helps me to remember to read the question twice. This makes sure I have a secure understanding of the problem.” Karol added, “By underlining the key words and numbers, we are making sure that we choose the important information especially in a multi-step problem.”
