Quick Overview

The activities contained in Problem Solving are based on a sports theme in which students find solutions to unique dilemmas: which skier will win the most gold medals, how deep in debt a scuba diver gets buying new equipment and how many pizzas the cross-country team can eat after a race.  This is no ordinary fill-in-the-blanks way to learn. These exercises are fun and surprising. Students will cultivate numerous skills including how to: identify and define a problem, eliminate excess information, create diagrams, charts or graphs, translate problems into equations, solve problems using statistical data, select appropriate operations for solving problems, choose and use formulas to solve problems, solve consumer problems involving interest and discounts, use logic to solve problems and check the accuracy of problem solutions.
