The activities in Problem Solving are based on a sports theme, in which students find solutions to unique dilemmas: which skier will win the most gold medals, how deep in debt a scuba diver gets buying new equipment, and how many pizzas the cross-country team can eat after a race. Students will cultivate numerous skills, including how to: *identify and define a problem * eliminate excess information * create diagrams, charts or graphs * translate problems into equations * solve problems using statistical data * select appropriate operation(s) for solving problems * choose and use formulas to solve problems * solve consumer problems involving interest and discounts * use logic to solve problems.
