PUZZLING
During the next two weeks

## we will be solving and discussing multiplication puzzles.

Multiplication is a necessary skill to solve real-life situations. Being able to express your thinking in mathematics is extremely important because it is how you build off one anothers ideas and how you learn. Simply being able to do a problem does not show that you are a master at it. Instead, being able to explain and show someone else how to do it does.

WHY?
Importance Outside of School

IOS
Riding your bike. Doing the dishes. Halloween candy.

PUZZLING
In an hour
You will have been able to apply the discussion skills of Reply, Reason, and Reflect by discussing, as a class, a puzzle problem that you have solved with their partner pair. You will use prompt discussion starter cards to engage in a full class discussion where you will verbally share your ideas, ask questions, and make comparisons.

Today
1. Finish Partner Puzzle Problem
WHY?

Some of you need time to finish working on your problem, use this time to do so. If you are already finished, it is important to review concepts you already learned or just recently learned to help make connections between old and new information.

2. Gallery Walk
WHY?

We get better in our own puzzling skills when we look at how other people solved the problem and compared it to how we solved it.

## 3. Review the Discussion Rs

WHY?

Knowing and being able to use the different ways to respond respectfully in conversation is the next step in being able to have a successful discussion.

WHY?

## PARTNER PUZZLE PROBLEM

Playing Stop the Clock is a lot of fun but the host wants to add a new element to the game. He was thinking of adding points for every correct answer. If each question is worth 15 points and your team answered 13 questions correctly, how many total points would he have to give your team?

## What do I need to do?

1. Work with my partner pair to finish solving the partner puzzle problem.

Put your paper on the edge of your desk. This is a gallery it is important to be quiet in a museum because it is a place to think about what you are looking at. Be kind and considerate to the people around you and allow them to think. If you become a disruption, you will be asked to leave the gallery.

## What do I need to do?

1. Walk around the room and take a look at my classmates solutions. 2. How did they solve it? 3. Did I solve it in a similar way or did I do something different? 4. This is a Gallery Walk NO TALKING. 5. When the timer ends, return to my seat and sit quietly.
