    May’s Math Problem to Ponder

    We want our Longfellow students and families to practice their math skills together. Each month for the remainder of the year, we will be featuring a “Problem of the Month.” Each problem is divided into five different levels of difficulty, Level A through Level E, to allow access and scaffolding for all levels. This month’s problem is called Inside Problem Solving: Rod Trains! Feel free to complete one or all of these problems with your child(ren). 


    How to Participate:

    1. Visit the following website and select which problems you want to work on as a family: https://www.insidemathematics.org/sites/default/files/assets/inside-problem-solving/inside_problem_solving_rod_trains_student_packet_2021.pdf

    2. Work through the problem(s) together and write down your family’s responses, descriptions, drawings, or observations on a piece of notebook paper.

    1. At the top of the paper, write the following:

      1. Your child’s name

      2. Your child’s grade

      3. The level of the problem (A-E) you complete

    *Feel free to submit all of the problems on different sheets of paper for multiple entries!

    1. Send your child to school with this notebook paper and have him/her put it in the Problem of the Month bucket on the table outside of the front office at some point before the end of May.

    2. On May 25, we will draw out 3 answer sheets and award prizes to the students whose papers are drawn.

    3. Have fun!
