Oxford International Resources: Problem Solving and Reasoning Skills for Primary

A six-level course for International education

Developing the real-world skills learners need for their future

This structured series covers years 1 – 6 and helps students develop their problem solving strategies and reasoning skills with year-on-year progression. Students are motivated by open-ended activities that enable them to choose their own way of solving a problem and to discuss ideas together.
