- Overall Description: We will examine four samples of student work, two
from Function Challenge and two from Car Rental Quandary. We will discuss how to respond to
students in a way that will lead to the most effective revisions.
- Part II: Suporting problem solving strategies (about 1.5
- Learning Goals: Getting every problem solving strategy heard. Supporting

Triangles. Each tutor will choose to play the role of a student who is presenting her/him with a
certain challenge (for example, a student who is always ahead of the group.)
- Interpretating the Problem:
- Read the problem for 2 minutes.
- Discuss your
undrstanding of what's happening in the problem.
- Ask questions such as: What do we know?-
I don't understand - I am not clear about - Is it always the same amount of..
- Discussing Problem Solving Strategies:
- Think about a strategy to solve the
problem and name it.
- Pair with another tutor who named the same strategy to work on
solving the problem.
- We will have a group check every few minutes to see how everyone is
progressing following their own strategy.
- Wrap up: Getting ready for our weekly supplementary session.
