A Description of the Problem For the problem-solving report, we have a 4x4 grid that we have to find as many rectangles as we can. The rectangles that can be found on the 4x4 grid ranges from 1x1 rectangles to a 4x4 rectangle. According to MathisFun.com a rectangle is, “a 4-sided flat shape with straight sides where all interior angles are right angles (90°). Also opposite sides are parallel and of equal length. Example: Another factor we have to consider is the lines provided on the 4x4 grid must make up the sides of the rectangles. Solution to the Problem: I found there are 100 rectangles in a 4x4 grid. General Problem: (n^2 〖(n+1)〗^2)/4 Strategies to Finding the Solution: Once I understood what the question was asking, I tried to figure different methods that would simplify the problem.…
The concepts delivered throughout the management problem-solving course have provided me with valuable simulated real-life experiences which can be applied in my everyday work life as a HR Administrator with aspirations of progressing my career. The course delivery was such that as a student, I was able to use my existing knowledge and skills, in addition to that of my peers, to analyse and explore complex organisational problems. This course has challenged the way I think and deepened my…
Problem Solving There are many different strategies that good problem solvers use to solve a problem. Before using a strategy, you must remember a few things. First, take your time. Few good problem solvers solve problems fast. Second, don't give up. You will never solve a problem if you don't try. Last, be flexible. If a first you don't succeed, try another way. And if the second way doesn't work, try a third way. There are a few…
Love to solve problems, I enjoy a challenge of identifying a situation at hand and being able to solve it. It brings me joy to restore something back to its initial glory and sometimes go back to previous problems knowing that I can fix it with giving it another try. Being restorative means being able to figure out what is wrong and fix it. Very skilled at dealing with problems, practical or personal. Being restorative is being able to say that I can go back and fix things that I’ve had…
I have decided to write about Scenario 2 for this assignment. I have found this scenario to be one that I can relate to having two school-age children that have been in this situation. As outlined by our webtext I will use the six-step problems solving process. Problem-solving is the process where we work to get a solution to a specific problem. Problem-solving by definition is the process of finding solutions to difficult or complex issues. It takes several steps to get to an acceptable…
In life, we all encounter problems related it to our job or a life situation. Problem solving is a skill that is required of every person in almost every aspect of life. Generally, people do not like problems because problems are time-consuming and they create stress.

Being imaginative is highly appreciated when solving a problem, which…
discussed in Section A, problem solving is not easily defined and is open to individual interpretation. However, it can be argued that problem solving involves a journey from problem to solution via a reasoned and logical route. In order to strategize, children require time to consider the problem, test out ideas and engage in collaboration and discussion (Pennant, 2013). By providing children with time, the teacher enables children to adjust and adapt their ideas, furthermore, the collaborative…
Approaches to Problem Solving “The internet is the most complex system that humans have ever invented.

One of the biggest obstacles that teams have is understanding the problem prior to listing potential…
I watched children in the class solve a word problem on the board. I decide that I wanted to observe the students in Math and make a checklist to assess their understanding of the concept skill presented. The students were suppose to master the skill of solving a word problem with pictures and then when they were done, they were to participant in a class discussion on how to solve the problem. With that being said, I decided to compose a checklist to see if students understood how to solve the…
