Powerful Problem Solving, Part A for K-3 and 4-12

Friday, October 4
Gibraltar Area Schools
    Suzanne Alejandre, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Participants will use the activities listed below as a guide to learn more about the Math Forum's Problems of the Week and approach to problem solving and communication. The session will be self-guided with the expectation that participants will find a balance between individual exploration and peer discussions about what they each have noticed and wondered about the resources and ideas. This Handout: Part A will be provided in their session materials.

Suggested time frame for each of the three parts:
    30 minutes: individual exploration
    15 minutes: peer discussion
    5 minutes: record some questions
