Reflection: Real World Applications Two Question Problems - Section 4: Closure


Students must be exposed more to problem-solving activities/assignments.  These require higher-order thinking.  I find that most of my students lack the ability to reason, construct, or compose effectively.  With this activity,  together we composed sample 2 question problems.  When the students paired up in groups, most of them had a difficult time composing their own 2 question problems.  Some of them could compose one question, but the second question did not relate to the first question.  By the end of the lesson, there were a few pairs who composed 2 question problems that were related.
