TEACH your students to THINK!
Life is full of problems that can have more than one solution. Our students need to see this referenced in math as well! Using word tasks that require students to produce a variety of answers encourages them to do more than find the answer and move on- it gets our students thinking outside of the box for other methods to solve! Soon, students begin talking with one another, sharing strategies, and debating numerous ways of thinking.
