“Justifying and explaining ideas improves students reasoning skills and their conceptual understanding.”

(Maher and Martino)

### Rachel’s Problems – Problem Type Difficulty 1 (easy) to 5 (most difficult)

1. Using a scale - Rate each problem in comparison with each other. - Record under Rating #1.

2. Working with a partner - directly model each problem, discuss the difficulty if the problem is directly modeled

3. At your table, discuss a mutual ranking. Think about the rationale - Rating #2.

### Rachel’s Problems – Problem Type Difficulty

Watch Rachel solve the problems.

How difficult of a problem is it for Rachel?

Does Rachel have a plan?

Does Rachel know how to solve the problem?

The amount of “time” to solve a problem doesn’t correlate with difficulty. In fact, to be a TRUE problem, a person should not know how to solve immediately.

### Big Ideas on Multiplication/Division

Multiplication/division problems are appropriate for beginning problem solvers.

The progression of use of various strategies for solving multiplication/division problems is similar to that seen with addition/subtraction.
