Open-ended Maths Investigations

A 3-book series of maths investigations



Open-ended problems allow students to bring their own thinking and learning strategies to the task. Some students will work systematically and logically. Some will draw pictures to make sense of the situations and yet others will plunge in using a guess and check approach, fixing up any mistakes and refining their thinking as they go along. Students benefit from seeing the possible ways of approaching problems and discussing and comparing their methods with those of peers.

This 3-book series provides teachers with open-ended problems matched to all strands of mathematics (number, money, measurement, space, chance and data and patterns and algebra). The problems encourage students to apply higher order mathematical strategies creatively and effectively as they develop proficiency in a wide range of problems and challenges.
