Reasoning in Maths - On-Demand

When we talk about mathematical ‘reasoning’ we sometimes struggle to distinguish it from word-problems. There is more to problem-solving than reasoning, and more to reasoning than problem-solving. If we understand what reasoning actually involves, we open up a rich range of experiences in maths - and across the curriculum - where we can develop and stretch our children.

  • Explore the meaning of reasoning
  • Look at structures that can be used to develop it
  • Investigate the cross-over between reasoning and metacognition

About this training session

In effective maths lessons reasoning is an integral part of the teaching, not just an add-on at the end of the week, in the context of some word-problems. Just like anything else, children need to have regular opportunities to practise reasoning skills, and that requires teachers to be confident in what reasoning actually entails. This training will:

  • Provide a definition and context for reasoning
  • Suggest a range of strategies and approaches that can develop this important skill
  • Support you in driving up standards of teaching and learning in maths


  • Class teachers and assistants (all years)
  • Maths leads
  • Key stage leaders
  • Senior leaders
