We have many math wizards at work at NLMSIS. We have partnered with a school in Omaha, NE, to test our math skills. Using the iPad app Explain Everything, participating fifth and sixth grade students at each school are writing their own real-world math problems and sharing them with our partners. After the exchange, students will attempt to solve each others' problems. Students will also use Explain Everything to record a solution and "talk through" the problem-solving process. At the end of the month, we will be meeting our partners via Skype to challenge one another live.
View a peek at some of the problems created by our students. Can you solve these problems? Send your answer to Mrs. Young at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you are correct.
