Math Comes in Many Forms
A common question posed to Junior High math students is, "How do you plan to approach this problem?" Will you write an algebraic equation? Draw a Venn Diagram? Make a table of values and look for a pattern? Work backwards to the solution, from the data provided? These are just some of the approaches that students have the opportunity to work with, in solving the Problem of the Week. A new problem is presented each week, and students have until Friday to solve and diagram or explain their solution. The Problem of the Week is an extra credit assignment, but what better way to earn extra credit than while improving math skills? Congratulations to Baron, Cade, Dahlia, Dashiell, Miles R., Yasi, Jackson G. and Melina, for solving every problem of the week so far this trimester! See if you can solve this week's problem, pictured here.
