Puzzle Investigator Problems: Challenging Math, Improves Discourse & Literacy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will highlight the Puzzle Investigator (PI) Problems found in Core Connections 2 and 3. This will be a "doing" session, giving the participants the opportunity to experience the math and gain insight into how to use the PI Problems with their students. Tips for enhancing discourse & literacy, peer edits on the write up, and using the 4 point rubric for "speed grading" will be modeled.

PI problems were designed to offer in-depth thinking, enjoyment, and challenge, for everyone
