This book has been created to encourage young children to use their Problem Solving and Reasoning skills, two of the Proficiency Strands of the Australian Curriculum. Written with direct links to the mathematics vocabulary required to solve the problem, children work co-operatively in groups, learning valuable mathematics content along the way.
This publication was designed as a sampler to show how cooperative group problems may be linked to the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. This first book in the series is designed to focus on the early years. The individual cards have been linked to specific content in the Australian Curriculum.
