All of our Workshops target strategic problem solving, but each has a different different content and focus.
The focus of our Stage 2 OOTB Workshops is to help students with the literacy of problem solving.
We offer two different Stage 2 Workshops.
In our first Stage 2 Workshop, we teach students' logical reasoning skills and the process of problem solving. We model the use of Newman's Error Analysis throughout this Workshop.
In our alternate year Stage 2 Workshop, we look at interpreting questions, drawing diagrams and making models.
The focus of our Stage 3 OOTB Workshops is to extend students' problem solving toolkit.
We offer two different Workshops to Stage 3 students.
In our first Stage 3 Workshop, we model the use of Newman's Error Analysis and build on students' ability to use logical reasoning. We also look at working backwards, (which is a foundational skill for solving equations once they move to high school).
In our alternate year Stage 3 Workshop, we look at the value of using models and diagrams in the problem solving process. We also specifically target the need for students to look for patterns when they solve problems.
Our Talented Stage 3 Workshops focus on the same strategies as our standard Stage 3 Workshops, only they use different questions and dealve a lot deeper ....
