Use the "Team Pair Solo" strategy to help your students understand mixed multi-step problem solving.
Students will solve their problems with their team first. Then, solve the same problem again with a partner (pair). Finally, the student will solve the problem solo.
- Save one of the problems for everyone to solve as an exit ticket.
- Have students from various teams model to other groups how to solve their original problem.
- “Be the Teacher” have students teach students from other groups how to solve their original problem by giving step-by-step instructions to a group that is “passing the pen” from one student to the next to do each step.
