    In this article teaching of problem solving in grade seven is addressed. Based on a proposal of teacher-guided practice with problem sequences by Burman and Wallin (2014), the author deals with the challenge that problem solving in mathematics should be designed for all pupils and not only for the talented. Problem sequences may be seen as a supplement to ordinary teaching in mathematics and the article describes pilot-tests in a lower-secondary school in Finland. The tests are situated in a Finnish reality but the design of the teaching process is based on earlier research with a connection to ProMath-conferences and combined with Nordic research. In a problem sequence the pupils work partly in groups and partly individually, they discuss the results with the teacher, they receive new information and guide-lines and then they proceed. The pilot-tests in a heterogeneous class seem promising as two main bases to build a development on have been found.
