Today we are going to have a chance to design “super star” problems. I want you to think about what might make a “super star” problem.
We talk about multi-step problems, distracting or extra information, and how problems involving 2 or more operations might give us trouble and how we can overcome that.
Students return to their seats and design a “super star” problem for each operation. Each problem must have 2 of these 3 requirements:
-2 step problem
-2 or more operations
After students finish each problem they show the steps for solving it, with an explanation for who they chose this problem and why they think it is a “super star” problem.
