Preparing students today to function successfully in the technology-driven workplace of tomorrow is a BIG challenge. Research tells us that we will be more successful if we can actively engage students in their own learning. This activity is intended to get students thinking and problem solving. Remember, it is okay for students to struggle. We all struggle with life’s problems and therefore this is good preparation for real life!
This research-based activity is a gateway for students to use real world mathematical thinking and skills as they: investigate, organize thinking, report findings, and share what they have discovered.
