This innovative resource provides a variety of activities which cater for a range of problem solving skills appropriate for children aged 6 to 8. It can also be used for older children who need consolidation of their skills and strategies in problem solving.
Students are encouraged to use any manipulative materials in the classroom to aid in solving problems. Students draw pictures and use mathematical notation to represent their ideas. Modeling and representing mathematical ideas is very powerful in allowing students to develop clear understandings and concepts.
Problem solving activities engage children in learning, by challenging them to think. They allow them the opportunity to express mathematical ideas and construct meaning and assist them to develop strategies and mathematical reasoning. Contains some Australian specific material.
