What do good problem solvers do?

October 4, 2016

Today we got into groups and had one “expert” show the rest of the group how they solved a problem posed to the entire class.  They made visible all of their thinking, and spoke their thoughts and strategies, explaining why they did what they did.  The observers had to write down what they noticed the experts doing.  Every minute we paused to allow observers time to write points.

We switched experts and we solved new problems involving linear systems.  We will collate our observed data tomorrow to come up with a master list of things that good problem solvers do.
