The Pedagogy of Picture Puzzles


One screen, two learners, concrete materials and a challenge - that's at least three pedagogical decisions right there. Here's another one. Screens of choice for kids are more likely to be dominated by pictures than words. Maths education screens are often more symbols and words than pictures. However, Picture Puzzles have more pictures than words, multiple levels of content, encourage mathematical conversation and Working Mathematically. Mathematics that's concrete, visual and makes sense is presented in menus offering students choice. Explore Picture Puzzles from Mathematics Centre and learn to create your own. You will need a web-connected device which opens PDF.
