When we are writing solutions to problems, it is really important that we communicate our thinking well. Make your thinking visible when ever possible. Below are some criteria we should think about when showing our thinking. Before you hand in your solutions, make sure you use this criteria to check your work:
- Are the ideas clearly communicated with pictures, words, charts or tables?
- Did you use a math sentence and circle or highlight your final solution to make sure the reader can find it?
- Do your calculations make sense? Can others understand your thinking?
- Does it answer the question or problem?
- Is it accurate?
Use the criteria above to provide feedback on the solutions below. These are three different solutions to the Mystery Number problem from last week.
