Students in Room One have been using a web-based program called GoAnimate to work out multi-step math problems. Students create their own multi-step problems that can be solved by their peers. First they write the problem out. Then they have to explain how they would solve the problem. We call this METACOGNITION! Once the problem gets the “stamp of approval” from a couple classmates and the teacher, they write the script. Give it a try! Solve some of our problems. Don’t forget to push “pause” before the characters spill the beans. Here are a couple of our finished products:
