Problem Solving

 A selection of resources containing a wide range of open-ended tasks, practical tasks, investigations and real life problems, to support investigative work and problem solving in primary mathematics. 
This list of resources is used in the course Using resources to develop problem solving skills MY203
Students are expected to be able to solve linear equations in one variable in a variety of contexts, including subject-based problems, using algebraic methods. This resource list contains a variety of activities requiring students to solve simple equations, two-step equations and equations in which the variable...
Students are required to use linear and quadratic graphs to estimate values of y for given values of x and vice versa. The most common area of use for this skill is when students are required to solve equations graphically. Students are also expected to be able to find approximate solutions of simultaneous equations...

Percentages

Students need to be able to solve problems using multiplicative reasoning. This requires students to understand the connections between percentages, fractions and decimals and to be able to interpret percentages and percentage change to solve problems. This resource package contains a range of activities to enable...
Students are required to understand that Pythagoras’ Theorem only applies to right angled triangles and need to use Pythagoras’ Theorem appropriately to solve problems. Students are also required to use side ratios in similar triangles to solve problems in right-angled triangles.Visit the...
Students are required to know what is meant by the surface area of a solid, be able to calculate the surface area of a variety of solids and to be able to solve problems relating to surface area. Students are also expected to understand what is meant by the volume of a solid, be able to find the volumes of a variety...

Percentage Change

Students are required to solve problems which involve percentage change, including examples of percentage increase and decrease and problems in which the original value is to be found after a percentage change has taken place. Other problems include simple interest in financial mathematics and examples of repeated...
Programming and development: design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts. Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.
