Mini Case Sampler
Use Solve-Compare-Share! as a strategy to encourage mathematical discourse amongst your students. The foundation of this strategy is as follows: two students work together as a team. Each student must his or her first math “clue.” Then, the two students their solutions and their solving methods. They should find out immediately if they solved correctly or not as both clues should result in the same answer! Teams should then continue to solve any remaining clues, being sure to check each one PRIOR to solving the next clue.
This Solve-Compare-Share! set includes (3) Mini Cases, each with 4 clues to solve. Math concepts/skills involved with the cases include:
A: Two-digit addition (numbers and base-ten models)
B: Add/Subtract 10 or 100 to a given number
C: Add 3 or 4 two-digit numbers
A Mini Case is ideal for Morning Work or a Do Now!
