This excellent two-book photocopiable resource series will help to develop students’ co-operative learning and problem-solving skills in measurement, number, geometry, algebra and statistics.
Book A focuses on co-operative problem-solving in Measurement and Geometry.
Enigmathics provides students with a range of strategies which will help them to become effective problem-solvers in a group situation. Students work in co-operative groups of four in order to discuss and try to solve the many problems posed in the resource. The problems challenge students’ understanding of mathematical concepts and language and help them to develop creative approaches in applying their understandings to everyday situations in which mathematics occur.
The activities relate to the strands: Number; Geometry; Algebra; Statistics and Measurement and develop the mathematical processes which run through each of these
