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

➥ 8.SP.1 – Interpreting line plots

➥ 8.SP.2 – Understanding Bivariate quantitative data

➥ 8.SP.3 – Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate quantitative data, interpreting the slope and y-intercept.

➥ 8.SP.4 – Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table.

Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association.
Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line.
Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept. For example, in a linear model for a biology experiment, interpret a slope of 1.5 cm/hr as meaning that an additional hour of sunlight each day is associated with an additional 1.5 cm in mature plant height.
Understand that patterns of association can also be seen in bivariate categorical data by displaying frequencies and relative frequencies in a two-way table. Construct and interpret a two-way table summarizing data on two categorical variables collected from the same subjects. Use relative frequencies calculated for rows or columns to describe possible association between the two variables. For example, collect data from students in your class on whether or not they have a curfew on school nights and whether or not they have assigned chores at home. Is there evidence that those who have a curfew also tend to have chores?
