This week we have been focusing on the math standard: 1.OA.2- Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20.
We have been focusing on the following essential questions:
How do I choose the most efficient strategy to solve a problem?
How do I represent the problem I am trying to solve?
How do I use different expressions that represent the same quantity?
One of the word problems we looked closely at this week was:
Tables in the classroom
It is time to do some math problems. The teacher puts three square tables in different parts of the classroom. One student can sit at each side of a table. How many students can sit around the tables? Show all your mathematical thinking.
