In this growing problem solvers article, readers explore their impact on the environment with their use of straws through measurement and geometry. The sequence of tasks spans grades P-12 and we invite readers to explore real world contexts with mathematics.


Growing Problem Solvers provides four original, related, classroom-ready mathematical tasks, one for each grade band. Together, these tasks illustrate the trajectory of learners’ growth as problem solvers across their years of school mathematics.
