How Do You Solve This Problem?
Posted on 01/04/2017
7th grade CSI classes, taught by Mr. Potter, are creating videos to demonstrate how to solve word problems using base 10 blocks, standard form, and an abacus that was made by the students in class. Students began by learning how to break down addition using the manipulatives and writing their own word problems. The last step included the students producing videos explaining the steps to solving the problem. Even though addition is an easy concept for 7th graders, showing steps to solving the problems to tougher than you might think according to the students.
