Math Problem Solving Challenge

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 to see if you are correct.
