                                      ‘group work’ theme. Not only will students be developing mathematical skills but
                                      they will also develop competencies in relating to people, situations and information.
                                      The project they are completing has a strong emphasis on group work.

           Information                Explain to pupils that as well as completing the problems, it is important that they
                                      consider how they are going about each task.
                                      Explain the competencies we will be working on and why these are important. Refer
                                      to the fact there is a direct link between the competencies and the levels they can

                           implement the skills for teamwork. They will be asked to discuss these.

                           Allow 10 mins for the students to complete this challenge, any students that
                           complete – are to start discussing HOW they worked. (Questions are already on the

                           At this point, there is little teacher guidance – allowing students to form their own
                           ideas / potentially ‘make mistakes’. Guidance will be given if it is the teamwork that
                           is lacking rather than the problem solving at this point.

              Activity 2
                           questions below – discuss as a class.

                           At this point we also discussed whether it was possible to achieve a level 5 with the
                           task they had been given – students correctly identified they had not be given the
                           opportunity as they were given the information they needed. Explain we will be
                           working on achieving that and improving our teamwork.

              Activity 3   Students to work in groups to solve the mathematical riddle –Can you discover the
                           shape? Allow around 10 mins for this challenge. Any students that finish are to discuss if
                           they worked better as a team this time round, solved the problem quicker /easier?
