Product Questions & Answers

On  September 15, 2013mandy mcafee (TpT Seller) asked:
I love this product. When I printed them everything came out fine except the fourth problem on Find a Pattern. There is a black block that prints over the problem. Could you help me with this issue. I have previewed it and printed it, twice and it still appears over the problem.
Thank you!

On  September 15, 2013Ashleigh answered:
I have no idea what would cause that. I just checked the file, and it looks okay. I'm lost on this one! If you contact TpT (link at the bottom of the page) I'm sure they can tell you what to do. They're very good at trouble shooting technical problems.

I'm so sorry for the trouble!

On  April 22, 2013,  Hugh H. asked:
I recently purchased your Problem Solvin Strategies. Looks good but I have one question. The first problem on Guess and Check has a solution of 48 sq cm for the original square. If all 4 sides of the square have to have the same measurement, how can it be 48? If all 4 sides were 6 it would be 36. if all 4 sides were 7 it would be 49. Please help me.

Thanks,
Hugh

On  August 27, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Ashleigh..Thanks so much for the fantastic problem solving packet. I love it! However, I had a group of parents concerned about the first problem on the Guess and Check worksheet....they did not think it was a fifth grade problem. Do you have an explanation that I can share from you on how you would proceed to solve it?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 27, 2012Ashleigh answered:
That's definitely the hardest strategy that needs a lot of modeling. I have my students talk about a good guess, and we "plug in" the number and see if it works. If it doesn't we discuss if we should choose a larger or smaller number and guess again. It's hard when students are used to getting a problem correct on the first try, so it a totally different approach for them. Please let me know if you need a better explanation!
