We will solve challenging math problems following the 3-Act Task model. We will develop our own questions, estimate, and explain ideas and answers, as well as cover content such as fractions, measurement, multiplication and division.

#### Class experience

###### US Grade 4 - 5
`Through this class, students will develop a range of mathematical thinking skills including asking questions, creating problems, determining needed information, making good estimates, determining a good estimate versus a bad estimate, adjusting estimates when given new information, using different problem-solving strategies, discussing strategies, defending ideas and critiquing the thinking and ideas of others. In addition, students will work on mathematical content including multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, ratio and proportion. `
`I have twenty years of classroom teaching experience at the elementary/primary school level and have been teaching the 3-Act Task problem-solving format for six years in brick-and-mortar schools. `
