Exploring ways to solve calculations
Use questions from pp. 9 – 15 Teaching Adults to Make Sense of Number to Solve Problems. Purpose: to identify strategies for solving calculations, and to understand the relationships between number knowledge and problem solving strategies. Provide practise in identifying and contextualising everyday and/or work-based calculations. Groups can make decisions about the degree of precision required, and level of sophistication of the knowledge and strategies required. As a whole group, discuss the implications of assessing strategy and knowledge progressions.
