Since problem based learning is an essential part of teaching the Common Core, why not start your students' day with a real life problem to solve? This set of Morning Math consists of a real life problem for each day of the second 12 weeks of school! The problems require students to think critically, applying mathematical skills learned throughout the school year.
Reminders to THINK, SHOW, AND SOLVE are included:
THINK: What am I to figure out in this problem? How can I use the information I'm given to solve the problem? How many steps will it take before I get to the answer? What strategy can I use to solve the problem?
SHOW: Write my thinking and strategies for solving the problem in the white space.
SOLVE: Once I've shown my work, write the answer(s).
Morning Math may be used as a starter for students arriving to class, as an independent assignment after work is complete, as a problem solving center activity, or for a whole class activity.
The Second 12 Weeks Set includes problems that require application of skills with mixed operations, multi-step problem solving, and critical thinking. Math topics include: Addition and Subtraction with greater numbers, Multiplication, Division, Measurement, Data, Geometry, and Fractions.
