Welcome to the toolkit Strategies for Problem Solving of the Inter-American Teacher Education Network. This toolkit is aimed at professionals who work at different levels of teaching and want to learn about problem-solving strategies and their application in family, social and academic settings.
An important point to clarify is that the term “problem” does not refer exclusively to mathematics, but rather to the challenges that we face daily which are also problems to be solved through certain strategies.
The Toolkit can be downloaded at no cost and shared freely.
Prerequisites: There are no pre-requisites.
Certificate: A certificate of participation is granted at the end of all activities
Modality: The Toolkit is self-guided and self-paced.
Welcome to the Problem Solving Strategies Toolkit, we hope these materials will meet the professional development needs of teachers in the Americas.
