The Problem Solving and Communication Activity Series Understand the Problem
Understand the Problem
The fundamental activity at the heart of Understand the Problem is I Notice, I Wonder™, an open-ended prompt that gets students talking about math scenarios in a non-threatening, careful way. Here are some activities that help kids look closer at the problem scenario to help them notice, wonder, and understand even more.
The Strategy Examples documents linked from these problems contain examples of what students could do with the activities. You need a Class Membership or higher to access Library problems.
