Welcome to White Rose Maths March Problem of the Day page!

Each day in March we provide 4 problems across KS1, KS2 and lower KS3 for pupils to solve.  Problem solving is a key pillar of the National Curriculum in maths and these questions are designed to get children thinking.  Have a go at one or have a go at them all!

You can do them in class, do them with your family at home or do them by yourself.  It doesn’t matter.  Just get involved in the fun of problem solving.

We encourage everyone to share their answers to our problems on social media channels.
