This note describes a situation which is familiar to students and constructs a mathematical model. A feature of this activity is that the problem described does not have a unique solution. Finding different solutions requires that the students have a good understanding of the problem, and different methods of solution provide an ideal opportunity for classroom discussion.

In this note we consider a problem involving the ratio of two unknowns and contrast an algebraic solution with a graphic approach.

 Problem Solving Resources (HTML or PDF)

This is a list of resources that the authors have found usefull in teaching problem solving.

In the Spring of 1997 some students in grade 8 at Truro Junior High School in Truro, Nova Scotia solved the problems in the resource Experiment in Teaching and Learning Problem Solving and sent us their solutions. We suggested that they make up some problems of their own to put on the Math Central site and these are the problems that they sent us.

These problems were created by students at Truro Junior High School in Truro, Nova Scotia. Their teacher, Mr. Paul Dennis (pdennis@tjhs.ednet.ns.ca) had them solve the problems in the resource Middle Years Problems - 1999 and send us their solutions. We suggested that they make up some problems of their own to put on the Math Central site and these are the problems that they sent us.

In this grades 7 to 9 activity students make measurements of their school and then construct a scale drawing.

Some ideas to begin a problem-solving centred mathematics program.

This note is in the twelth edition of Ideas and Resources for Teachers of Mathematics, a newsletter published by the Saskatchewan Mathematics Teachers' Society. It announces some short courses to be offered in Saskatoon in the Summer of 2000.

On décrit, au moyen d'exemples tirés du programme d'études, les étapes de la résolution de problèmes.

Dans l'exemple ci-dessous, nous partons d'une situation familière è l'élève pour arriver au modèle mathématique. Un des avantages de cette activité est qu'il n'y a pas de solution unique. Trouver diverses
