These Cre8ate maths activities develop multi-stage logistical thinking. The Planning ahead puzzle develops process skills of problem solving: working systematically and creating, describing and experimenting with systematic strategies. Making tea is concerned with finding the best way to organise time and draws on the Critical Path Analysis skills required to find an efficient solution to this kind of problem. Building a warehouse is another Critical Path Analysis activity which provides the opportunity to sequence a number of tasks considering which tasks can proceed in parallel in order to find an efficient solution.
