Description Authors
  • Problem solving and reasoning in real-life scenarios
  • 8 episodes
  • Screen these 3-minute episodes on a DVD player or an interactive whiteboard
This book contains eight fun, yet challenging, problem- solving scenarios that explore the three major strands in the Australian Curriculum. These video scenarios feature James Pond a bumbling private investigator who runs his investigation business from a park bench. Angel, a media-savvy teenager, secretly assists him. James and Angel have realistic (and entertaining) problems to solve. For example, a cyclist has forgotten his lock combination but can remember a few number clues. James and Angel use these clues to try to figure out the combination using different strategies.

Students watch the video to find out the problem and then work out their own strategies to find the solution. They then compare their strategies with those used by the two characters. A challenge problem (a further complication) is also presented at the end of each scenario for students to solve. The three levels of books and accompanying DVDs in this series feature the same scenarios and characters but with increasingly complex problems to solve.

Click here to find out how the videos can be used to support the teaching of your mathematics curriculum.

Suitable for middle primary students.

The books provide support for the teacher with:
  • photocopiable summaries for each problem solving episode
  • teaching notes with key questions for each stage
  • three sample solutions for each episode with assessment rubrics
  • the solution for the challenge questions

About the series:

Each of the View & Do Problem Solving books provides eight 3-minute realistic contexts on DVD that have been created to demonstrate how to use a range of maths problems solving strategies. The stimulus for problem comes from the video and students are encouraged to select their own strategies for investigating the situation and providing solutions.

The design of the video segments and the problems posed enable the busy teacher to fully implement the proficiency strands of; understanding, fluency, problem solving and reasoning as outlined in the Australian curriculum as well as covering the eight General Capabilities.
