What is Problem Solving

What is Problem Solving? Does it only happen in maths?

Have you ever asked yourself what is problem solving? I think problem solving is trying to find a solution or answer to the problem. What do you think it is?

 Do you think problem solving only happens in maths? I say no because you can use problem solving in everything.

Eg: The All blacks and Australia were playing against each other Australia was winning because they had 35 points and the All blacks had 6 how much more do they need to catch up.

This is my problem solving we had 20 minutes to write about what is problem solving and is it only used in maths. After that we had to work with a critical friend and wrote a comment on each others. What I think problem solving is trying to find the solution to the problem. I say no because Problem solving is all over the world it's not just in mathsWhat do you think do you think yes or no?

Dear Term 1 Me

You have achieved some of the goals I have set for you. You have improved in your maths & reading. This year my netbook wasn’t working and had to go get fixed and it stopped me from learning. I’ve had a great year and ready for next year. Next year I'm gonna try to be the best I can in class and try to improve more on my learning.
