This Reciprocal Problem Solving Guide for Mathematics can be used in the classroom to assist students to work collaboratively through worded maths questions. It encourages them to think deeply about the question, reflect on the problem solving process and consider how they contributed to the task.
This process seems to work best with 2-3 students in a group. Ensure students are working with someone of similar ability, however slight variances in ability groupings can often mean students extend and challenge one another.
This Reciprocal Problem Solving Guide for Mathematics is ready to be laminated and cut into two A5 reference sheets for your students to regularly refer to during reciprocal problem solving lessons.
Please see my reciprocal question sets that are available in a variety of levels. There is also a sampler available. These questions are ready to be laminated and cut into cards, which allow student choice as to which problem solving question they would like to attempt.
