Math Collaborative Problem Solving Activity - Higher Order Thinking - Mastery of Skill!
This is a hands-on, collaborative, problem-solving activity that challenges students to utilize their knowledge of PLACE VALUE to complete a range of tasks.
The students must use a set of 'clue cards' of various mathematical facts and information, which they must use to complete the task cards. This activity moves away from the traditional worksheet and develops students understanding on a deeper level, promoting mastery of skill.
Included in this product:
1. Overview of the activity with clear instructions
2. Differentiation Options
3. Set of Clue Cards
4.Set of Task Cards
5. Flipchart to introduce effective group work
6. Resources to support students.
8. Group Roles - description and badges to support effective collaboration.
7. Answer sheet for teachers.
This is a tried and tested product that I use in my own classroom. It is a great hands-on activity, the students LOVE it and are always begging to do more! Also, I use it as an assessment tool to see the students level of understanding at the end of our unit.
