Using UKMT problems to develop problem solving skills

I like using problems like the one attached to this post, taken from the 2012 UKMT Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, in the classroom. If you haven’t seen it before, have a go at it now, but also think about how you might use it in the classroom.

I have used this question by just drawing the diagram...

Problem solving in computing and across STEM - part 1

UK students are good problem solvers. PISA tests reveal that they are better than most international peers, including those from countries with better performance in mathematics and reading. Can this help their achievement in computing and other STEM subjects?This series of articles explores problem solving in computing and across STEM, asking ‘what is...

Problem solving in computing and across STEM - part 2

In part 1 we discovered that STEM subjects have common practices that can be shared and taught in the same way to reinforce and improve students’ learning. In part 2 we look at a possible approach to problem solving in computing and how this touches other STEM subjects.Solving problems in computing – a possible approachComputers process data. Problem...

Problem solving in computing and across STEM - part 3

Our previous articles (part 1 and part 2) have looked at how problem solving is used in STEM subjects and the skills that can be transferred to other subjects to improve learning.In part 3 we learn how debugging can be utilised in other lessons as well as posing questions we as teachers should all be thinking about…Debugging – evaluation and testing in...

How are you going to assess problem solving?

I attended the Yorkshire Ridings hub mathematics conference last week and was entertained by Alex Bellos who gave a very interesting talk which included the results of his world-wide quest to find the world’s most favourite number and the reasons why people had a favourite number in the first place. Maybe you...
