Reflection: Rigor How Many Bananas? A Word Problem - Section 3: How Many Bananas? Partner Work


To adjust the rigor as needed for students, changing the beginning number of bananas or changing the problem so that it is a multi-step word problem (e.g., how many bananas will the monkey eat in a month) are easy options to create. 

The problem could also include two monkeys sharing the sixty-four bananas equally.  There are many options to change the rigor of the lesson to meet the numeracy and strategies levels of the students.
