Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates' approaches to writing and solving real-world problems involving operations with decimals.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • What information from the table did you use to solve the problem?
  • What do you need to find?
  • What operations do you need to use to solve the problem? Why?
  • How does this expression, equation, or model match the problem situation?
  • Why does your solution method make sense? Do you show all the steps?
  • Is your answer reasonable?
