Description

Problem Solving Across the Curriculum can be used to complement any classroom work across the curriculum. The activities can be used in isolation, in sequence, or dipped into as teachers require.

The activities in the Problem Solving Across the Curriculum series present a wide range of problematic situations for which there is more than one solution or more than one approach to the solution. In real life problems are not usually neatly presented nor are the solutions immediately visible. When a potential solution is found, it needs to be evaluated to see if it is the best solution possible.

These problem-solving activities will lay the foundational skills, strategies and disposition needed for pupils to become lifelong problem solvers.

There are five different types of problems presented:

  • Mathematical problems – focus on using estimation efficient number strategies, shape and position with flexibility and strategic thinking.
  • Visual literacy problems – focus on using elements of visual language (colour, position, shape and planning) to convey ideas, create mood and develop visual flexibility and creativity.
  • Music and dance problems – focus on developing perceptions about the ways in which rhythm, pattern, sound and movement can be combined to create solutions to musical challenges.
  • Values problems – focus on reflecting and evaluating responses to everyday problem situations where interpersonal or ethical decisions need to be made. They provide an opportunity for philosophical thinking.
  • English problems – focus on communicating clearly through spoken and written language specific to the task, purpose
    and audience.
