Problem Solving Lesson - Who Wrote This?

Problem Solving Lesson - Who Wrote This?

This lesson encourages students to use Maths that they know to try to solve a real world problem: Who wrote an anonymous document. The lesson is set up as an intriguing mystery and is solved in small groups, your students should be hooked from the start. There are many mathematical skills which students can employ to solve the mystery, and as students have the choice, there is natural differentiation baked in to this rich task. The powerpoint does suggest two possible avenues for students who struggle to come up with an idea. These use: averages relative frequency One extra note - this lesson is best used with larger classes, as no single technique is particularly accurate in isolation. The magic happens when each group compares their results and their combined solution becomes a lot more convincing.
