Problems are designed to develop critical and creative thinking skills. Teachers are encouraged to form Collaborative groups from within classes or between classes. There are a mix of video and non-video problems.
Problem-solving is about persistence so students should not rush nor give up too quickly. Two levels of Help are available: Hint and Guide followed by the full solution. Each time a student accesses a Help level, marks are deducted from 100%. If the Solution is accessed marks reduce to zero.
- When you login, you will view any problems which have been set by your teacher. Start with these first. Then try as many problems as you like at any time in any Year. Remember MathsRepublic gives you the freedom to extend your learning.
Teachers – Teachers can set Tasks for a class, groups within that class, or form collaborative pairs or groups up to four students within that class. Explore all options. Teachers are encouraged to be flexible in how their approach Task-setting. The key pathway is to move students to collaborative learning.
Answers may be an exact number, a word, or a selection from multi-choice. If a Problem has several questions students must answer one question before the next question can be viewed. Students receive the highest marks when a problem has been solved correctly without utilising the Hint or Guide.
Students can monitor their own progress and note improvement. The goal of students is to limit accessing Hint and Guide.
The video lessons are aligned to the Australian Curriculum from Year 7 to Advanced Year 10. Students should access these lessons for all purposes from revision to pre-Assessment study. Video lessons are also for reference when attempting Tasks set by Teachers. Patrick’s video lessons clicked through Resources cover all topics up to Year 12.
You start with the Problems. They are designed to develop critical and creative thinking skills. They are not topic-centric. Approach each problem as an exploration. Discover connections. Each problem is a scenario and ranges in complexity. Try different strategies and always draw a diagram whenever appropriate. Problems span the Australian Curriculum.
