Problems can be solved in a variety of ways. This packet contains 6 classroom wall printables and a set of printables for student interactive notebooks to provide a framework for approaching problems. Not all strategies will work on all problems. Still, it is helpful for students to have different ways to solve problems. These printables provide a quick reference for students and are an invaluable tool.

A full version including black and white and color versions of all printables + wall printables with samples of all strategies is available here.
