Problem solving in Maths

Grade 3 have been hard at work inquiring into measurement in the world around them. This week students were given the challenge to measure the surface area of various objects around the room.

During this investigation, not only did they need to apply their knowledge and understanding of measurement but they also needed to be collaborative, use a range of thinking skills and lots of organisational skills.

Ask your child "What have you been focusing on in Maths this week?" What 'hands on' activities can you do at home to reinforce these concepts? Cooking, building, exploring, planning a trip? Don't forget the unit flyer on each Junior School grade level blog outlines Maths concepts currently being learned. Helping your child solve problems in real world situations by doing fun activities at home is a great way families can help boost their child's confidence in problem-solving in Maths.
