Chapter 7 – Option 3 (Action)

Try one of these strategies in your classroom and tell us how it went. (Of course, try it yourself first to anticipate student responses and questions they might generate.)

            A. 101 Questions https://www.101qs.com/

            B. Notice and Wonder https://www.nctm.org/mathforum/

            C. Problem posing with data (like the fish scenario on pages 145-147)

    My students completed a multi-disciplinary lesson about Legos yesterday. One activity was to examine a picture of Legos and generate questions about the picture. Students asked how many Legos were in the picture, how many of each color were there, sizes, etc. They were able to ask many different questions. Once we collected the questions on the white board and sorted them by similarities, the students wanted to know how to answer the questions. Just as in 101 Questions, I told them there were no answers to the questions today. We were just wondering and sharing. The students were perplexed BUT asked if we could dump a pile of Legos out and solve some of the questions in real life. They were incredibly engaged and excited about the idea.

      Love this idea! Can you tell us the grade level? (I imagine this could work for several different grade levels...).
      Thanks for sharing, Karen
