Math Problem Solving

1. Read the problem stem with your partner. Discuss what you know about the story of the word problem. 2. Read the problem a second time with your partner. Discuss the kinds of questions you can answer with the information given in the problem. Think of at least three. 3. Read the problem a third time with your partner. Now you will choose which of the questions you came up with you would like to answer. It does not have to be the same problem as your partner. Remember to choose the one that is at the appropriate level of difficulty for you. 4. Draw a math picture to help you solve the problem and find the answer. 5. Take a photo or show your math picture in your Seesaw and explain how you used it to get your answer.
