Challenging through depth – place value task

Challenging higher attaining students through depth – rather than moving them onto new curriculum content – takes a while to get used to. We provide a range of ideas on how to go deeper into topics. This place value task is a good example of how you can incorporate depth activities in your class.

  • Challenges students to solve problems in new and more complex ways
  • Teacher questioning supports students to think mathematically
  • Designed to develop and deepen pupil’s conceptual understanding
