The following problems allow more opportunity for students to apply strategies that they are most comfortable with. Each page also has space for students to explain their thinking.
Differentiate by having students who need a challenge solve for the last question on each page in their journal.
Encourage math dialogue by having students discuss the strategies they used to solve each page in their journal.
