Title: Guiding Students' Next Steps for Money Word Problems
Description:

Critical thinking is a relevant skill for today. Prior to this learning activity, students will explore the values of each coin, the dollar bill, and will have been exposed to money word problems. In this learning activity, “Plickers” are used to formatively assess solving money word problems to guide the teacher's next steps. Students will use critical thinking when deciding what operation to use in each money word problem. Students will be able to make real-world connections when adding/subtracting different coins.

This activity was created as part of a collaboration between Alabama Technology in Motion and ALEX. Activity author recommended by TIM Trainer Barry Wiginton.
