“Problem solving is an important way of learning, because it motivates children to connect previous knowledge with new situations and to develop flexibility and creativity in the process.”
Young children are natural problem setters and solvers: that is how they learn. This workshop will teach ways to develop children’s mathematical problem solving strategies with confidence. It will take them through the stages of problem solving include ‘getting started’, ‘working on the problem’, ‘digging deeper’ and ‘concluding’.
Children will get opportunities to explore a variety of mathematical word problems and devise systematic ways of solving them.
- Hands-on activity
