What is EPSE?
In mathematics, students continually use problem-solving, language and communication, and reasoning (justification and proof) to make connections within and outside mathematics. EPSE is a method in which students can explore a problem, plan and solve it, then explain their thinking.
What does each letter stand for?
E – Explore: Fact Finding
P – Plan: How will I solve this problem?
S – Solve: Find the answer.
E – Examine: Show or explain how the answer is
Team Celebration helpers are needed at the end of each nine weeks to celebrate the success of the winning teams. Please sign up to help.
