Warm-Up activities

We opened and closed our day with a math problem involving triangles. First, kids worked on it this morning on their own or in small groups. In time, everyone got to the correct answer. The really interesting part was later in the afternoon, when a sampling of kids took turns explaining how they had solved it. Of the kids who shared their processes, we saw at least three different methods (and a few variations) on how to approach the problem.
