Problem Sets are great for engaging students while practicing their math skills. This Problem Set activity focuses on standard 6.G.A.1. Students solve problems involving quadrilaterals, triangles, trapezoids, and composite shapes made up of these shapes.
Students work in groups. The group is given the first set of problems. Each member of the group solves a problem and writes their answer on the group answer sheet. The teacher checks the answer sheet. If the answers are correct, the group will be given the next set of problems. If any of the answers are wrong, the teacher sends them back to work collaboratively to figure out which problem(s) are wrong and correct them together. This continues until the groups have worked through all sets of problems.
Problem sets are a wonderful way to engage students with a little fun and competition. Students also work collaboratively as they try to figure out which problems are not correct and they help each other understand material.
