Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Vocabulary Word Problems - Section 2: Explore


Students needed an example to demonstrate creating problems that moved away from simple computation and required them to think. What did they want to know? What steps did they want the person solving the problem to take? What kind of situation would they describe? Could they find the answers themselves was the most important question I posed to them? It was a good, thinking activity. Students responded well to becoming the authors of the problems too!
