Problem Solvers
problem solvers: problem: Dessert dilemma

Erin R. Moss 

August 2013, Volume 20, Issue 1, Page 8

Abstract:
A good problem can capture students’ curiosity and can serve many functions in the elementary school classroom: to introduce specific concepts the teacher can build on once students recognize the need for additional mathematics or to help students see where to apply already-learned concepts. We encourage teachers to use the monthly problem in their own classrooms and report solutions, strategies, reflections, and misconceptions to the journal audience.
