This term we have been doing LOTS of problem solving in maths!
We start off each math session by getting into groups of our choice, and working together to solve different types of problems. Our problems are usually based around activities we do at morning tea. We come up with the problem together.
In our groups we discuss and compare our ideas and STRATEGIES to try and solve the problem. Our goal is to see if we can come up with at least three ways to solve each problem.
All of this talking and sharing helps us to think about HOW we get an answer. We also learn new strategies from others in our group that we may be able to try next time. We are enjoying collaborating with each other and our confidence in math is definitely improving every day.
