Processes in Problem Solving 1

Course Description:

Process/Purpose

Students will start with the basics of "more than and less than" and progress through complex fraction and time problems. They will learn how to visually represent all concepts. Eventually students will confidently work through the concepts without the visual aids. The goal is also to provide confidence and competence as they advance into middle school problem solving. This class is supplementary to other grade level math courses and not meant as a replacement.
