Active engagement is the name of the game in these 72 word-problem challenges for any computer or interactive whiteboard. As students drag and drop 4 kinds of beans to solve problems visually, they also: build understanding of relationships among numbers; practice logic; and encourage mathematical thinking. Let one volunteer demonstrate on an interactive whiteboard while others follow along with manipulatives at their seats and you guide the discussion. Encourage further practice and exploration at centers, or let each individual work through the problems at his own pace. Those at different skill levels can choose to jump ahead or get a hint, and all will learn from these interactive challenges. As students progress through increasingly difficult problems, watch the skills and enthusiasm grow!
