Problematized situations can be used as:

• a pre-assessment before commencing a unit of work (use an unfamiliar problem), thus ensuring that the planning of the unit matches the range and needs of the students,
• a post-assessment at the end of the unit of work (use an unfamiliar problem) to assess the growth made as part of a summative assessment task and rubric,
• familiar problems as part of a 3-day cycle. These are a repeat of a problem that students have met, but with varied contexts or numbers. The 3-day cycle is:
• Day 1 — work on an unfamiliar problem
• Day 2 — a focussed strategy lesson with Anchor Chart
• Day 3 — a familiar problem to ensure growth is happening (know the impact of the sequenced intents)
• unfamiliar, complex problems to challenge and ensure that students are stepping up.

The problematized situations in this series support the teaching of:

Foundation: ACMNA001, ACMNA002.

Year 1: ACMNA012, ACMNA013, ACMNA014.

Year 2: ACMNA026, ACMNA027, ACMNA028.
