Problem Two men facing a tall building notice the angle of elevation to the top of the building to be 30oand 60orespectively. If the height of the building is known to beh=120 m, find the distance (in meters) between the two men. Heuristic Problem Solving Stage 1 Question any assumptions Key in your assumption/s in the linoit individually.
Solve the Problem Individually (my perspective)
Once your assumptions and hypothesis have been clarified, start working on the problem individually. No discussion with anyone for this stage.
Collaboration - seeking multiple perspectives
In the big group of 5-6 students, present and discuss your solution with the group.
Focus on the assumptions/hypothesis, Process and the validity of the final solution(s).
Post your Group's solution as a New Post with the following criteria:
Post Title: Heuristic Solution (Group number)
Present the following:
- Assumptions Made
- Process (how you solved the problem) - what method/approach you used eg diagrams, on-line resources
- Final Solution
Review the solution(s) from other groups.
To facilitate process, follow the following:
Group 1 to comment on Group 2
Group 2 to comment on Group 3
Group 3 to comment on Group 4
Group 4 to comment on Group 1
Review the comments made by the other group.
Be prepared to defend or justify your POV.
However, if an error has been committed - learn from it.
