The focus for this printable is to have students discuss the reasoning and process of how the answer was found. This printable allows students to analyze a story problem and prove the answer is correct. I find my students are very quick to find out it the answer is correct. However, I am more interested of what process they use t get there. I use this printable in a small center activity, group work setting as well as independent thinking.
