Problem Solving 1

Photo Source: Jalan Besar PCF Kindergarten, Singapore

Problem: Cut the bread (square) in half. In the photograph, the students have 2 triangles and 2 rectangles. Are there other ways to do this?

Further Question: Do you get more jam on the triangle or the rectangle bread?

Today is the first day of lesson and the focus is on experiencing problem solving in mathematics and other domains so that we can arrive at a definition of problem and hence problem solving.
