 Maths Top Tips for Reasoning Questions:

  • Identifying what information you’re given in a question, and what you need to know to solve the problem. This helps you start to form the steps needed to find the solution.


  • ‘Spot the maths’ in a question – which calculations or skills do you actually need to use to solve the problem? This is useful even for arithmetic questions – it’s no surprise how often you can misread a question.


  • Check the units! Especially in questions involving multiple measures, it can be easy to give the answer in the wrong one. The answer box might give a specific unit of measurement, so you should work to give their answer in that unit.


  • Convert different units of measurement in a question into the same unit to make calculations easier e.g. kg to g.


  • Encourage numerical answers where possible. Even in explanation questions demonstrating the mathematical calculation is a better explanation than trying to write it out.


  • The bar model can be a useful way of visualising many different types of questions, and might make it easier to spot the ‘steps’ needed for the solution.


  • Check your working out! Even if the working is ultimately irrelevant to the question, you can lose marks if it is wrong. Use the inverse!
