Some Problems of the Week

Posted on February 15, 2012. Filed under: Assessment, Common Core, Problem Solving | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Here are some great problems of the week to either do as a whole class, in centers or in guided math groups.  Remember that you want students to show a model of their thinking and describe a strategy ( a way of thinking about the numbers).  They should write about how they solved the problem and check it in a different way than they first solved it.

Remember that when you are teaching problems you should refer to the problem type.  The research says if teachers help students to have a conceptual understanding of the problem then they can better solve it.

Happy Mathing,
