How do you solve problems?

In yesterday's class students created their own maths stories. Today they had to use Showme to record how they solved problems. Some kids responded with, "Here is the answer" and others said, "I just solved it". I challenged them to show me their thinking.

A big take away we got when reflecting on today's lesson was that, it is important to understand the question before we solve it! 

Just the start of showing our thinking! 

I love how this child even added a question from our previous unit at the end about rounding! 

I solved it Mr Boyd! Success! It was a reinactment, but a true one!
