Depending on your own experience in using open-ended and richer tasks, we would recommend you read and use the activities in the AO3 Problem Solving Guide first before you use the tasks in this booklet.
1.3 OCR & The School Mathematics Project Support for Problem Solving A further set of tasks has been carefully developed and trialled by The School Mathematics Project in partnership with OCR.
We hope you find these tasks interesting, useful and rewarding.
2 The investigations Dodgy Dice Pawel and Becky have invented a game.
They are not practice exam questions but are instead tasks to help learners develop the mental flexibility that they need for the new elements in the exams.
Like the AO3 Guide, the SMP Problem Solving Tasks Pack is free to all centres, irrespective of which specification you are teaching, and available on the OCR website.
