A common way to answer any type of problem is for the students to state their claim (the answer), their reasoning (how they solved the problem), and their evidence (why they solved it the way they did).
This set of 4 math problems, presented as 'do now' (warm up, bell ringer) problems, require that the student:
1) underline the question(s)
2) circle important information
3) show their work (EVIDENCE)
4) indicate words or phrases that justify why they solved the problem they did (REASONING)
5) the answer(s) (CLAIM)
These problems involve adding, multiplying, and dividing.
