Math Problem Solving

The intermediate students are showing off their problem-solving skills. Each week, Mrs. Walker posts a new question or task, with the goal of finding as many ways to solve the same problem as possible. The solutions are displayed on our new math bulletin board to share all of the inventive ways students have found solutions. ARES students are off to a fantastic start, and it has been great to see their creative solutions.

Thanks to Mrs. Walker for this brilliant idea!
