**Activity 3**

**Activity 1 Problem solving heuristics**

Here is a simple
Mathematical problem.

There are 28 students in
your classroom.

On Valentine's Day, every student gives a valentine to each of
the other students.

How many valentines are
exchanged?

**Question:**

What are the Mathematical Heuristics that you think will be suitable to solve the above problem?

There is a pattern in the question

ReplyDeletePerson 1: Exchange with 27

Person 2: Exchange with 26 (As it exchanged with no.1 already)

Person 3: Exchange with 25

Person 4: Exchange with 24

.

.

.

Person 27: Exchange with 1 person

Answer will be:

1+2+3+4...+27 = 378

OR

27x14(14 sets) = 378

Answer: 378 valentines are exchange
