• The objective of this assignment is to make students understand and think the strategies to solve the non-routine problem. • The students also must try the games or puzzle that have no specific ways to solve the problem • So. . they must creative and critis if they want to solve the problem.

• For this non-routine problem. There are no specific way to solve it. • Non-routine problem also can be solve by Polya’s problem solving model. we are required to use or create new method to solve it. .• Non-routine problem is a problem with variety of solutions.

1.• We had choose a Maze Making game.GUESS AND CHECK 2. • We have identify that there are two suitable strategies to solve this game.LOOK FOR A PATTERN .

.

.

we are require to arrange the grass block to help the monkey. • The monkey need the help to cross the river safely.STEP 1:UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM • Firstly. • In this maze making game. . we must understand the problem in this game.

it will be fall down into the river and be eaten by the dangerous shark. there are the shark. • If the monkey cannot cross the river. . • So that.STEP 2: PLAN A STRATEGY • We are plan to use guess and check. we must try to put the grass block along the pathway that can help the monkey cross the river. • As we can see.

we are try to put the grass block at the first box and then to another box until the path is built correctly • We are continuous trying arrange the block if our first guess is not correct. . STEP 4: LOOKING BACK • We are check if the method we are using is correct to solve the problem correctly. • If not. we must do the game again.STEP 3: CARRYING OUT THE SOLVING STRATEGY • First.

.

So that. this game is in a big square shape we there are 16 small box inside it. . we can arrange the grass block by look at the pattern.STEP 1:UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM • Firstly. • As we can see. we must understand the problem in this game.

we must know where to put the block based on the shape of the block. . start from the monkey or we can start from the centre to the cross river or we can start from the opposite side to the monkey. • Firstly.STEP 2: PLAN A STRATEGY • After know the pattern. • From the block. we plan a strategy to arrange the block grass.

• If not.STEP 3: CARRYING OUT THE SOLVING STRATEGY • We use the strategy that we plan to solve this game. . we must do the game again. • Try to put the block connect to each other. STEP 4: LOOKING BACK • We are check if the method we are using is correct to solve the problem correctly.

• The reasons why we choose the method 2 are because the strategies are more specific. the method 2 (look at the pattern) is most suitable to solve this game. . • We can solve the problem more faster and easily when we use method 2. from this two different method to solve this game.• As a conclusion.

The strength of this game is when we use the look for a pattern method. .• Weakness . From that we can arrange the grass block wisely. we will waste a lot of time to solve it until the correct pathway is built where we need to take time for thinking the suitable grass block to arrange • Strength .The weakness of this game is first if we use guess and check method.

• We had choose the stick game .

.• The question is you must remove three sticks and leaves three triangles. • The method guess and check and look for a pattern are also apply to this game.
