Problem-Solving is started with a vision to inculcate real-life problem-solving skills in young children. Problem-solving is at the core of great inventions, scientific discoveries, and solving environmental challenges. We believe continuous engagement and exposure to these skills nurtures children mind and develop persistence, curiosity, and leadership skills along with problem-solving

Objectives:

  1. Children should be able to solve unknown problems at their level of knowledge.
  2. Children develop an attitude to dive deep and research an issue.
  3. Children learn to break complex tasks into relatable ideas.
  4. Children learn to see problem-solving functions in daily activities.
  5. Children learn to collaborate and communicate with peers and build leadership skills.
  6. Children show persistence and initiative in working on a problem.
  7. Children develop a systemic view of societal, environmental as well as scientific challenges rather than in isolation.
  8. Children learn to apply the solution from one domain of knowledge to another field.
  9. Expose children to moral dilemmas and build emotional intelligence.

Problem Solving event promotes mathematical and real-life problem-solving skills in young children. If you feel problem-solving is only about solving a mathematical problem, then you have got it completely wrong. Mathematics is one of the many perfect tools to solve a problem. Problem-Solving event is about practical activities which aim to develop curiosity among young learners to solve a problem.

Individuals can click here to register.
Schools can drop an email at contact@arcbook.in with the subject “Registration for Problem Solving” and tell us the School Name and contact number. Our team will get back to you for the registration process.

Students from Grades 1 to 6 or age 5 to 12 years old can participate in the event.

The second cycle of the event is on 22nd December 2020.

Yes, it is a digital problem-solving event.

There will be two rounds. The students who qualify round 1 will go for round 2.

Students will be selected for the second round based on the lowest time and highest number of the activities completed.

Round 1 will be of 60 minutes duration.
Round 2 will be of 15-30 minutes duration. It will be a one to one session conducted throughout the day with one of our educators.

The activities will be around the following topics:
a. Decode the patterns
b. Algebraic Thinking
c. System Thinking
d. Mensuration
e. Playing with Numbers
f. Real-life Problems

Round 2 is on the spot round, in which students will be given a couple of real-life practical problems to solve. This round will require some readily available stationery. The list of materials will be provided in advance.

The problems will be a combination of mathematics and practical problem-solving activities. It will be great if they can revisit the topics listed above, but even if they don’t, they’ll be able to attempt the questions.

Yes, we are conducting free training sessions every Saturday for all our participants. If you wish to join our rigorous Problem Solving training program, read the training section below.

Mensuration (Grade 3-6)

Saturday, 28th October, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm IST
Create a shape with exact perimeter or area.

Problem Categories

On the spot practical problems

These will be the real-life problems that will test students' presence of mind and how they go about a situation in real life. Think about the issues you face in real life, waking up on time to drawing a straight line without a scale.
Algebraic Thinking

Algebraic Thinking

Algebra is great fun. You get to solve many puzzles like finding the unknown, balancing the equation, extending a pattern, etc. Do you think a vegetable seller knows the concept of algebra? Explore yourself.
System Thinking

System Thinking

System thinking defines linkages among independent systems. For example, to study the city's pollution level and make a proper decision, it is essential to understand other autonomous systems.
crptography

Decode the Pattern

Patterns are everywhere from beautiful buildings to sequence of numbers.
Geometry

Mensuration

Create a shape with exact perimeter or area.
Combination

Real-Life Problem Solving

Coronavirus spread or finding the path on the lost road are some examples of real-life problems.
Arithmetic

Playing with Number

Requires the understanding of digits and numbers.
Algebraic Thinking

Algebraic Thinking

From finding the unknown to balance the equation, we all know algebra.
System Thinking

System Thinking

Think holistically about a problem and not just in isolation.
