Problem Solving Questions - Junior Cycle
The purpose of the questions provided below is to begin to shift the the emphasis from teaching problem solving to teaching via problems.
The focus is on teaching mathematical topics through problem-solving contexts and enquiry-oriented environments which are characterised by the teacher 'helping' students construct a deep understanding of mathematical ideas and processes by engaging them in doing mathematics: creating, conjecturing, exploring, testing, and verifying.
