Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

By now students have worked with many strategies to add and subtract numbers. Students will work in pairs. One student will think of an addition or subtraction problem and choose an efficient strategy to solve the problem. Then the student will give the problem to the other student who will solve the problem and explain his/her strategy to the partner. The problem poser will ask questions about the explanation or tell how the strategy matched the strategy he/she used. Students will discuss the benefits of a particular strategy. Then the other student will pose the next problem. The students will keep track of strategies used and try to create problems that will allow them to use more than one strategy. For the last few minutes of the activity the pairs can share out the different strategies they were able to use and explain.
