The activities on this page are sorted into two types:

  • The problem solving investigations each present a mathematical problem and provide support in starting to explore it.
  • The Mathematical explorations each provide a starting point for exploring an interesting idea with important mathematical content.

Both types of activity include printable student pages, and teachers' notes pages.
