Problem-solving is an engaging, rigorous and student-centered way to teach math. Not only will your students learn core math skills, they will learn how to think critically, choose their own problem-solving strategies and communicate mathematical ideas in a meaningful way.
There are 45 problems included in this packet, all aligned to the Common Core. Domains covered include:
* Operations and Algebraic Thinking (deepening understanding of addition and subtraction, including writing equations)
*Geometry (in-depth exploration of both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes)
I've included notes to the teacher for each week as well as questioning prompts to deepen students' mathematical understandings during share time.
Each problem has a cut and paste prompt. I have also included a separate Microsoft Word file with editable 1 x 2.63” labels.
Problems for the Rest of the year are available here:
