Problem solving

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Felicia Megret

Problem Solving consists of using generic or ad hoc methods, in an orderly manner, for finding solutions to problems. The term problem solving is used in many disciplines, sometimes with different perspectives, and often with different terminologies. For instance, it is a mental process in psychology and a computerized process in computer science. In this module, we learn to understand what the goal of the problem to be solved is.  We explore some new problem solving tools, and we do some abstract thinking to come up with a creative solution!

We will explore

  • Identifying a problem
  • Exploring some problem solving tools
  • Working creatively to problem solve
  • How working together is helpful for problem solving
  • Let’s use our new problem solving skills

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Reflection worksheet
  • Teacher assessment

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
