Lesson: Problem Solving
These are for practice with daily problem solving.Â Students use a four square organizer to do the following
1) I know: list/note key facts and numbers necessary to solve the problem
2) IÂ need to know: What is the question the students are answering?Â Students should also plan how to solve here with a picture.
3) IÂ solve: Students compute using chosen operation or method
4) IÂ check: Students check their work using estimation, opposite operation, or another method.
Choose one or two students to share their four squares on an overhead or projector to display different ways of thinking about and solving the same word problem.
