Reflection: Quizzes What's Your Story? - Section 3: Publishing


Students were asking to solve equation using any manipulative and tools they needed. I reminded them to record their solutions with illustrations, words, and numbers.  This sample shows a student who is drawing off their own knowledge, and through this process, she will develop a clearer understanding of what the problem solving process is. Students should have frequent opportunities to formulate, grapple with, and solve complex problems that require a significant amount of effort and should then be encouraged to reflect on their thinking.

By learning problem solving in mathematics, students should acquire ways of thinking, habits of persistence and curiosity, and confidence in unfamiliar situations that will serve them well outside the mathematics classroom. In everyday life and in the workplace, being a good problem solver can lead to great advantages.
