How to solve Arithmetic problems on Work-Time, Work-Wage and Pipes-Cisterns

thumb solve work time work wage and pipes cisterns

Different persons or types of persons complete the same work in different number of days as their work capacities are different. For example, a boy may complete a work in 6 days while a man may complete the same work in 3 days. In work-wage problems these work rates become important as the working agents receive wages in ratio of their work capacities. Finally, in pipes and cisterns problems similar working agents come into action in the form of pipes but they receive no wages...

How to solve School Math problem in a few steps and in Many Ways, Trigonometry 4

thumb_How to solve a school math problem in a few simple steps trigonometry4

The mechanical approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. In this problem we have highlighted the possibility to solve a problem in many ways and also the application of less facts and more procedures approach, both working towards improving the general problem solving skills of the student...

The conventional approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. Following only this approach to solving problems, students may tend to become used to mechanical and procedural thinking suppressing their inherent creative and innovative out-of-the-box thinking abilities...
