Use this cross-curricula product to provide your students with opportunities to build and refine their mathematical problem-solving skills. The ten word problems are based on the mathematical folktale, One Grain of Rice, by Demi and are CGI designed. Cognitively Guided Instruction allows students to think for themselves by giving them the freedom to solve flexibly and in multiple ways. Students soon learn there is more than one way to arrive at an answer.
If you are not trained in CGI, you can still use these problems with your students.
There are two sets of the same problems. In one set numbers are provided. In the second set, numbers have been purposely left out of the problems so that you can differentiate to meet the needs of your students.
