Shape Problem Solving #problemsolving #maths #primary #persistence

Topaz class were posed with the task of seeing how many triangles they could make using three straws. They went off to solve this problem independently to begin with and they all came up with the same solution; three straws for each side of a triangle made them three triangles. We came back together and discussed ways of making more than three triangles with our nine straws and then went back to investigate the problem again. We came up with some very interesting and different solutions to the problem. You could have heard a pin drop in our classroom during this activity; the concentration in the room was unbelievable! #problemsolving #maths #primary #persistence
