Problem Solving  

      What is the purpose of this workshop?

      The workshop specifies the knowledge and skills required to solve problems and make decisions.

      The essential purposes of the mathematical literacy requirement are that, as the learner progresses with confidence, the learner will grow in:

      • A confident, insightful use of mathematics in the management of the needs of everyday living to become a self-managing person.

      • An understanding of mathematical applications that provides insight into the learner`s present and future occupational experiences `and so develop into a contributing worker.

      • The ability to voice a critical sensitivity to the role of mathematics in a democratic society and so become a participating citizen.

      • An insightful use of mathematics in the management of the needs of everyday living to become a self-managing person.

      Who can benefit from attending?

      This workshop is intended for managers of small businesses and junior managers of organisations. 

      What are the outcomes?

      At the end of the workshop learners will be able to:

      Solve problems, make decisions, and implement solutions

      • Defining a problem.

      • Investigating the problem.

      • Generating problem solutions.

      • Implementing problem solution.

      • Evaluate the effectiveness of the solution.

      Apply knowledge of statistics and probability to critically interrogate and effectively communicate findings on life related problems

      • Critique and use techniques for collecting, organising, and representing data.

      • Use theoretical and experimental probability to develop models, make predictions and study problems.

      • Critically interrogate and use probability and statistical models in problem solving and decision making in real-world situations. 

      Represent analyse and calculate shape and motion in 2-and 3-dimensional space in different contexts

      • Measure, estimate, and calculate physical quantities in practical situations relevant to the adult with increasing responsibilities in life or the workplace.

      • Explore analyse and critique, describe and represent, interpret, and justify geometrical relationships and conjectures to solve problems in two- and three-dimensional geometrical situations.
