Trial and Improvement

Simply 'having a go' is a great way to make a start on a problem. When you do have a go, if it works out well that's fine, but what happens if it doesn't work out so well? Do you start again from scratch or is there a way to use what you've already done to help? Have a go at these tasks which might be solved using this 'trial and improvement' way of working.
