Activity 3:

Problem-solving

[lo 1.2, 4.4, 5.5]

In the story THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT, Della had a problem. She thought long and hard about her problem and came up with a solution.

  • Do you have a problem in your life? If so, write it down on a scrap piece of paper. If you are lucky enough to have no problems, or if your problem is too confidential, imagine a problem and write it down. Exchange your problem with a classmate and let him/her help you with this problem by following these steps:

Make sure you understand exactly what the problem is. If you do not, ask your friends some questions until you are sure about this.

Brainstorm a number of solutions to this problem. Remember at this stage you do not need to even stop to think about whether they will work or not.

Select at least three possible solutions to the problem. Prioritise these solutions numbering them 1 - 3. The solution you think will work best will be No. 1, etc.

Now discuss each of your choices in turn with your partner and reflect on these and see whether they are feasible (could possibly work). Let your partner decide which would be the best option for him / her.

CHECKLIST yes partly no
I understand clearly what the problem entails.
I brainstorm ideas in order to have several solutions from which to choose.
I look for things I can improve.
I am willing to try new things and make changes to my original plan after reflection.
I ask questions when I do not understand.
I listen to educator’s/ peer’s suggestions for improvement.
I am prepared to try another solution if my first choice does not work.

Mark and Don are planning to sell each of their marble collections at a garage sale. If Don has 1 more than 3 times the number of marbles Mark has, how many does each boy have to sell if the total number of marbles is 113?
mariel Reply
Mark = x,. Don = 3x + 1 x + 3x + 1 = 113 4x = 112, x = 28 Mark = 28, Don = 85, 28 + 85 = 113
