Time to Try

Select the appropriate grade level span below and complete the set of associated tasks. In each set, the same mathematical concept is addressed.

As you complete the activity, compare the tasks with your grade span concept and consider how context might affect student understanding and perseverance.  Consider which task is more likely to draw in and “hook” your students, encouraging them to persevere to find a solution. Consider also the questions you might ask as a teacher to “hook” the learner.
