One Problem to Solve
In an attempt to address the Math Processes in the graphic here, I will expose the class to One Problem to Solve (OPTS), collected below.
Students will discover and create their own problems, while being guided by the teacher. Rather than provide a Math problem, the process followed takes advantage of student curiosity and creativity to see Math problems for themselves, identify necessary information, and solve the problems using tools, precision, strategies, and structure. They are always asked to communicate their reasoning and learn from their mistakes along the way.
