Maximizing our Instructional Situations

“Challenge Like” Problems Defined

Challenge Like problems are problems that…

combine math topics

contain a real-world context

are able to be solved in multiple ways

The BEN & JERRY’S Challenge

Objective

To maximize our instructional situations through the use of creative problems (i.e. “challenge like” problems).

Use them because they are

RIGOROUS!

Why use “challenging problems”?

Characteristics of “Challenge like” problems :

COMPLEX: are thoughtful, purposeful, and intellectually demanding

AMBIGUOUS: allow for “multiple entry points” and can have more than one solution

PROVOCATIVE: deliberately aimed at stimulating student interest and curiosities

ENGAGING: are student-centered

CHALLENGING: designed for greater intellectual demand

Personally or Emotionally Challenging: challenges the learner to confront and think about situations, beliefs, philosophies, cultures, and behaviors that are unfamiliar and sometimes uncomfortable

What do you know about Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream?

Fun Fact from 1983…

This makes my brain think…

Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream is sold in pint containers. So…how many pints of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream did it take to build this 27,102 pound sundae?

Your Task…

As a group be able to answer this question:

How many pints of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream would it take to build a 27,102 pound sundae?

Brainstorm

What are we going to need to know to solve this problem?

How could this help us to solve this problem?

Your Group’s Task

Find the total number of pints needed to build the sundae.

Create a chart/poster/presentation that explains the process your group went through to come up with an answer.

Show how your answer was calculated.

Be sure to organize any data collected into a chart, graph, or table.

Credit your sources of information.

Explain what each person contributed to the final product.
