Triton third graders have been discovering multiple strategies to help them solve math problems as one way to work on increasing “rigor” through state process standards. As learners repeatedly practice each week, they gain knowledge and confidence in their math thinking. They spend a little extra time during math to use their own solution paths to unravel challenging questions and clearly communicate their answers to each other. The added level of sharing results allows others to see different options to answer a problem, justify answers, and to encourage success with each other.
