Problem Solving…

At this age typical activities rely less on intuitive and visual solving of problems. Students can use their knowledge to find solutions. Through practical Roamer activities they can develop and master important skills.The Robot Rally Race requires students to perform experiments to determine the robots speed and to engage with various statistical calculations. Involvement and motivation in the activity outcome transfers to the mathematics making the tasks meaningful to the students.
