Story Problems

Found in: math; problem solving

Here's a math enrichment tip. Each month my students write an original multiple step problem-solving question using a theme. For example, in October they can make up a problem about Halloween. The students submit their story problems without the answers written on them. They type them and can add a graphic if they like. Toward the end of the month I collect the problems and make a booklet for each child. On the last day of the month, I give them the booklets and ask them to solve their classmates' problems. After solving, they go to the author to see if the answer is correct. Both my kids and their parents love this enrichment project.
