Problem Solving Time!

This afternoon we used unifix cubes to help us make mathematical discoveries. Each table sorted the cubes in different ways. We noticed that we all sorted them by color first. After wards we each worked with a smaller group of cubes and came up with different ideas of how to sort our group of cubes. Some of our ideas were; by size, tallest to smallest, patterns that we created, long and short lines, and some of us sorted our cubes by the number! Wow! Lots of great math thinking happened this afternoon.

Some of the children used a document camera to display and show their mathematical thinking! This was awesome as we could see what we did on our SMARTboard!
