Room 19 have been learning how to solve problems effectively in maths.
To do this we are given problems based on a real life scenario. First we are given time solve the problems by ourselves. Then we work in our thinking groups and share our strategies. We also need to write down any different strategies we learn from our thinking group buddies.
As a group we decide on the most efficient strategy for each problem (the way that would be easiest to solve in our minds). Then we may have to share this with the class and discuss our learning.
Here are some photos of us sharing our strategies in our thinking groups today and of our strategies shared.
