Reasoning Express – Engagement with the Railway Through Maths


The Reasoning Express challenges give pupils the opportunities to learn and use their mathematical skills in a real-life context. The challenges explore mathematics that underpins aspects of the railway industry.

The Reasoning Express is a series of mathematical problems and investigations that are linked to the Year 4 and 5 Mathematics National Curriculum. During the Spring and Summer terms of 2020 there will be four challenges that your pupils can access. Each challenge has a clear set of instructions where your class of pupils will select an entry to put forward, which will compete with the other schools involved.

How you decide to deliver the challenges is up to each school. Some might prefer whole class lessons, others a lunchtime club.
