WHAT is 4 Square Problem Solving???
It is a great way for your students to break down a math word problem.
I use this method in my classroom! It has proven to be a good indicator of number sense, problem solving skills, and strategy comprehension.
I ALWAYS start out each year with a whole class lesson using the 4 square problem solving method. It keeps the students thinking. They are required to use vocabulary, show their work, write about their thinking, and make equations. This strategy also keeps them organized and neat. It is VERY easy to grade and I provide a VERY simple way to grade it!!! You will also get 4 posters that describe each of the 4 squares!!!
PLEASE look at the preview and comments before purchasing :)
this goes perfectly with my pencil strategies and is available in a bundle
