Math Intentionality (Freebie)
I've found that it's so easy to get stuck asking my mathematicians to think about the same kinds of contextual problems, even when I know there are several other types. I get stuck in a rut, and as a result, my kids do too and it's not even their fault. I want to make myself more accountable to the other problem types, so I created this checklist. The document includes the 14 problem types and very simple examples of each. My goal isn't simply to get a checkmark in each column but to be more intentional. I hope this helps someone else be more intentional as well. Click on the picture for your own copy.
