Share Your Solution

Today students worked together to solve math problems with models, number lines, numbers, and words.

We used RICE to lead our work.

As prescribed by the SRSD approach, I modeled my thinking when completing a problem. Pretending to be a 10-year-old, I solved the problem in front of the students. Later students got up to show their thinking and solution. It was a powerful share.

As we move deeply into a problem solving chapter of the school year, more and more students will "teach the class" by sharing their problem solving work and thinking.

I'll remind the class that each time a person shares it stretches our own thinking in new ways, ways that serve to develop our mathematical thinking and skill.
