Learning about problem solving in education is now available to everyone interested in the field. In the week that commemorates the birth of a problem solving pioneer, Hungarian mathematician Pólya György, whose book How to Solve It explains the principle behind problem solving, we are organizing the first problem solving week in the region. Through workshops and panels, the attendees will actively participate in the acquisition and application of problem solving skills. Together we are strengthening the global problem solving community and implementing new approaches to education and life, while commemorating the 133rd birth anniversary of this great scientist.

“Air pollution“ (School day)

The second round of qualifications in Brainfinity 2022 required students to explore whether one person-one car is the most common traffic situation. In the second step of this challenge, problem solvers tried to persuade drivers to quit that practice, and to car-pool with their neighbors, cousins or friends in a video message. The criterion for this challenge was that the video message hits at least 500 views on one of the social media, and it represents a collage of our problem solvers’ works.

“Surveying in the new media age“

Geometry originated as a practical way to handle lengths, areas, volumes, and although it has changed a lot since then, the general concepts that lie in the basis of geometry remain unchanged, regardless of the method of work. In this workshop, students used their stride length to measure the distances needed for a triangle, while using their classmates as the vertices. You will learn what creative approaches students used for geodetic design featuring different elements, and what new media, such as Geogebra, they used. The workshop is held by Jasmina Savković.

However, in this case, we want to know what is the place of mathematics in living languages, and vice versa, where do living languages fit into mathematics, and who helped whom to develop? We will show how to use the Morse code, Braille, and sign language as teaching aids that utilise three senses – hearing, sight, and touch with the aim of developing interdisciplinary competences. 

The workshop is held by Zorana Lužanin, professor at the Department of Mathematics and Informatics in Novi Sad.
