Move up day to grade 5

  Goal: I can reflect on how I use problem solving strategies + the mathematicians toolbox when solving worded problems. Goal reflection: I can work in a group to solve problems and I can use the problem solving strategies to solve a problem also  I can use mathematical language to reflect on my work when I use the problem solving…

Mathematicians Toolbox

The mathematicians toolbox has 12 problem solving strategies. They are: Break the problem into manageable parts. Make a model. Act it out. Make a table or list. Guess, check and improve. Have I seen a similar problem. Test all possibilities. Find an exception for the rule. Look for and describe with a pattern or rule.…
