Inquiry Maths primary
contains mathematical prompts appropriate for pupils between the ages of six and 10. 
Children are encouraged to explore, explain their reasoning and begin to think about regulating inquiry. Some of the prompts have been designed specifically for primary classrooms; others appear on the main website, but have been used at primary level.
The picture (right) shows one pupil's inquiry into the adding fractions prompt, which was carried out in Amanda Klahn's grade 4 (year 5) classroom at the Western Academy of Beijing.
