Answer key and suggestions/ tips for how to use this product are included. Your students will be begging for more Power Problems!

WHAT ARE P.O.W.E.R PROBLEMS?

PURPOSEFUL - These problems are meant to keep students focused, while strengthening initiative and perseverance.

OPPORTUNITIES - These prompts can be used in a variety of ways. P.O.W.E.R problems can be used to introduce a lesson, spiral review, or as formative assessments.

WITH

ENGAGEMENT - Problems are real world applicable and designed to hook students with interest and presentation. Complexity of problems promotes problem solving skills.

RIGOR - Tasks are specifically designed to challenge students and assess conceptual understanding of curriculum versus procedural understanding. Students will need to apply more than just a “formula.”

WHY USE P.O.W.E.R PROBLEMS?

BUILD STAMINA WITHIN YOUR STUDENTS!

P.O.W.E.R problems are designed to challenge your students with their open ended presentation. Majority of problems that come from textbooks and workbooks assess procedural understanding of curriculum. Some textbooks even provide step by step instructions where the textbook is thinking for the students and taking away that “productive struggle” for children. When we rob students of that event, we rob them of their ability to reason, problem solve, and see beyond a standard algorithm. P.O.W.E.R problems are meant to show students that there are different ways to answer one question in math. With these tasks students take ownership and are part of the problem solving process versus filling in blanks in a textbook.

HOW TO USE POWER PROBLEMS:

YOUR KIDS. YOUR CHOICE. FLEXIBILITY.

TO INTRODUCE A LESSON - P.O.W.E.R problems can be used to introduce a new skill. In this case your students will experience a “productive struggle.” Their problem solving skills and prior knowledge will kick in. Often times most of my students will have the incorrect answer or no answer at all. I then have someone explain their method/reasoning and allow my students to critique their peer’s answer. This makes for great accountable talk discussions. If I see that most students do not have an answer I will assist the class in getting to a specific point and then allow them to finish independently.

SPIRAL REVIEW - Avoid your students forgetting standards, by using P.O.W.E.R problems to spiral review previously taught lessons.

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS - You can use these problems to assess mastery and levels of understanding.

Standards & Topics Covered

Statistics and Probability

  • 7.SP.1 – Understanding statistics
  • 7.SP.2 – Generate multiple random samples
  • 7.SP.3 – Recognize the role of variability when comparing two populations
  • 7.SP.4 – Use measures of center and measures of variability for numerical data from random samples to draw comparative inferences about two populations
  • 7.SP.5 – Understand that the probability of a chance event is a number between 0 and 1 that expresses the likelihood of the event occurring
  • 7.SP.6 – Experimental probability
  • 7.SP.7 – Develop a probability model and use it to find probabilities of simple events
  • 7.SP.8 – Determine probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Design and use a simulation to generate frequencies for compound events. For example, use random digits as a simulation tool to approximate the answer to the question: If 40% of donors have type A blood, what is the probability that it will take at least 4 donors to find one with type A blood?
Represent sample spaces for compound events using methods such as organized lists, tables and tree diagrams. For an event described in everyday language (e.g., “rolling double sixes”), identify the outcomes in the sample space which compose the event.
Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.
Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. For example, find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land open-end down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies?
