Scratch lends itself to excellent problem solving activities - 'mathematical/scientific' problem solving.

These are typical problems that are used in programming competitions and olympiads.

If you have completed the Scratch curriculum, test learners' problem solving ability by giving them these problems or show learners these type of problems and encourage them to use it in their PATs.

We need to focus a lot on problem solving.

This should prepare them properly for Grade 11 and the high level programming language.

Remember that one needs to 'teach' problem solving by exposing learners to these type of problems. By doing this, they learn strategies and techniques to see patterns, devise algorithms and solve problems.

I found such problems on the website:
