This 4 page practice explores different strategies for solving problems including:
-finding patterns (shapes & numbers)
-using logical reasoning (solving logic puzzles)
-guessing and checking
-creating a table
The content is divided into the four categories above.
Part I contains 8 questions on finding patterns in shapes and number sequences.
Part II includes two different logic puzzles that gives students clues for them to solve using logical reasoning.
Part III has two questions for students to solve using the Guess and Check method.
Part IV provides students 2 different scenarios for them to create a table to solve each problem.
I have taught these skills as a short unit at the beginning of the school year and used different examples as problems of the day throughout the year to keep their skills fresh.
