One thing that I know to be true is that sometimes we need to hear/see/read things more than once before they really sink in. This week’s “Texts on Tuesdays” is a throwback to a post from LAST summer…with a few changes. If you aren’t familiar with CGI math, I can’t suggest enough that you dig in and learn as much as you can. Whether you teach primary or intermediate students, understanding how students learn to problem solve is so important.
How is this problem-solving method different?
Perfect for intervention
|Blank pages to glue problems to use as assessments…the rest of the problems got glued into math journals
|Students pick the numbers that are the right size for them…
|Full-sized problems to use as teaching tools
|Love watching how students solve the problems…and then use as a part of our mathematical discourse
