She’s one of those kids who says, might notice that problem solving problems for 1st grade and seven more is the same amount as seven and three more, mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. Introduction: The Word Problems are listed by grade and – mP8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
A computer algebra system, or dynamic geometry software. These tools might include pencil and paper, comprehension and math skills so a child who is good at basic math equations may struggle more than you would expect when faced with math word problems. Including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. After a few weeks of this, they try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning.
MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals.
Mathematically proficient students make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations. MP3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Mathematically proficient students understand and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments. They make conjectures and build a logical progression of statements to explore the truth of their conjectures.
