Have gone thru my son’s p4/p5 worksheets but there’s nothing specifically labelled investigative maths. I figured that Inv Maths are typically done at the start of each topic to expose the students to a concept and its applications. Then the calculations/mathematical drill would come in.

These are the ones which I think would be classified as investigative:

- Traffic statistics (graph plotting)

- All corners aren’t square (cutting tiles to fit corners)

- Pick your pyramid (visual)

- Regular polygon combinations (escher drawings)

- Perplexing perimeters

- Area estimations

- Shortest route

- Unfolding a cut-out piece

- Making tangram puzzles

- Sieve of Erathosthenes

- Abundant/Amicable numbers

- Cryparithm/Missing Numbers

- Tile trial

- Palindrome

- Egyptian fraction tiles

- Petite proportions

- Decimal puzzles

- Permutations & Combinations

- Fibonacci numbers

- You are what you eat/Duck soup/I’ve been converted (decimals/fractions)

- Daffynition decoder (angles)

- How much number sense have you (big nos/standard forms)

Thanks Mathsparks
