Applying Problem Solving
  Introduction | Measuring Ant Tunnels | Problem Reflection | Classroom Practice | Problem Solving in Action | Classroom Checklist | Your Journal


Now that you are familiar with the Problem-Solving Standard and some of its aspects, we'd like you to apply it. We will see how Joe Reilly, a first-grade teacher, helps his students work on a problem involving non-standard and standard units of measurement. Before they begin to work, students talk about possible strategies and tools they can use to measure. They then set to work to apply their strategies and conclude by sharing their approaches and solutions with others in the class.
