About This PDF
As a way of introducing and engaging students to mathematical problems, this PDF combines eight fun, yet challenging mathematical investigations and problems with real life scenarios. This PDF explores the three major strands in the Australian curriculum for upper primary.
The eight scenarios are based off the DVD (not included) that feature James Pond – a bumbling private investigator – who runs his investigation business from a park bench. Angel, a media-savvy teenager, secretly assists him. James and Angel have realistic (and entertaining) problems to solve. For example, a cyclist has forgotten his lock combination but can remember a few number clues. James and Angel use these clues to try to figure out the combination using different strategies.
The three levels of PDFs in this series feature the same scenarios and characters but with increasingly complex problems to solve.
