Years 2 - 6 spent some time with the people from the Problem Solving Company and they certainly had fun amidst the hands-on activities. With its focus on mathematical problems the sessions were geared around collaboration and group focus. There was plenty of head scratching but the concepts and strategies were all explained and children were set the task of sorting out all types of puzzles.
Shapes and large puzzles were laid out in the Edleston Studio and mezzanine and pupils were able to apply their knowledge of maths to help reason through a problem. This allowed them all to build on their knowledge and ensured a great day was had by all.
