PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This daily problem solving PowerPoint can be used in a variety of ways. I use it as part of my morning work and math meeting. It is on the screen as my students come in for the day. After unpacking they work the problem in their math journal. During the first 3-4 minutes of our math lesson I allow them to discuss the problem with their math partner. I stress the importance of verbalizing exactly how they solved the problem, not just the answer.
I then call on a student to come to the board to show how they solved the problem. I intentionally left plenty of white space on the slide to give students space in which to solve their problem on the board. We talk about if there might be another way to solve the problem, and if so, then I will allow that student to come to the board to show his/her way. This is an excellent way to encourage math conversation, and I have found it to be very beneficial in helping my students with word problems (especially those tricky 2-step problems!)
You could also print each slide and after laminating it, place the problems around the room. Allow students to walk to each card to solve with a partner, or individually for an assessment. I have included an answer sheet at the end of the slide show in case you would like to use it in this manner.
