Nationals Math Class

October 14, 2016

The Nationals Math classes have taken off this year with problem solving!  After all, geometry, algebra, measurement…Math is all about solving problems!  Using a four step problem solving strategy, students have enjoyed sharing their ideas with other students. Communicating ideas is critical as students work

together to come up with the best possible answer.  Students learn that a reasonable guess is good, but being able to test your guess and correct your guess is critical in arriving at a solution. Developing multiple solutions to a single problem deepens their reasoning skills. And most importantly,  mistakes are viewed as opportunities for learning!
