Teachers’ Notes The Active Maths booklet represents a response to current trends in mathematics for the development of problem solving skills in primary school students. The activities contained within the booklet are designed to interest and stimulate children in the 10 to 12 years age range. They are presented as blackline masters which are able to be photocopied for use in the classroom. Wherever possible the activities are stand alone worksheets although occasionally other materials such as grid paper, glue or card may be required.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Problem Solving Strategies The activities in the Active Maths booklet are thematically grouped and are so structured as to provide an increasing level of difficulty with each successive sheet in the theme. Obviously gifted children in lower years, or less able children in higher years, will both find the structured problems equally challenging.

ew i ev Pr

Knowledge of the problem solving abilities of the students is essential, in order that each child can be presented with an activity which he or she feels comfortable solving and not become frustrated with, because of inappropriate matching.

Initially problem solving activities could be tackled in class groups. This establishes a framework from which the children can branch out to work in smaller problem solving groups and then ultimately, independently. This step by step approach uses a structured framework for tackling problems: Understand the nature of the problem. Develop a strategy for solving the problem. Carry out the chosen strategy. Look back and check.

w ww

Ask questions about the problem. Edit out irrelevant details. Re-word the problem in simpler terms. Highlight key words or phrases. Find similar problems to model from.

2. Develop a strategy for solving the problem. Discuss alternative strategies. Use concrete aids. Use pictures or scenarios. Use tables or patterns. Use logic. Guess, check and alter strategy accordingly. Use trial and error techniques. Eliminate inappropriate solutions.

Be aware of alternative methods of solving the problem. Be able to present the steps leading to the solution. Page 4

When a cartographer (map-maker) is colouring a map it is usual to give different colours to any two countries, states or regions which have a common border. Here is a simple example...

Where areas meet at a single point they are not considered to have a common border and so may be coloured the same. For example:
