Math Tools and Strategies is a poster or checklist for use during a math lesson or at math centers. Perfect for small groups or differentiation.
Pose a math problem and allow kids, buddies, or groups to solve the problem using a math tool of their choice. They can use the checklist to review options, to aid in their math conversations, and to share their solutions with the class.
The teacher can demonstrate how to use each math tool or strategy (plan) over the course of several lessons.
BONUS: Math Task Checklist -- to aid in Math conversations and to guide math problem solving strategies.
