Word Problems Come to Life

Our grade 7 mathematics classrooms are working on developing an equation from context and then solving it. Mrs. Patterson, Ms. Nunes, and Mrs. Lewis collaborated to develop a lesson that included Criteria for Success, reinforced the use of our sentence stems for Accountable Talk, and a Model example. The word problems were differentiated and students were allowed to choose from two options. Students worked on chart paper in groups of two and three groups were chosen to record their conversations using MoveNote. Later on in the week, students will listen to one group’s conversation and discuss the vocabulary and discussion. (Pictures courtesy of 7I)
