#### Think Math: Answer is on the board, students write their question on sticky note and place it on their own student number. What an awesome multilevel idea!

#### Think Math: I put a “answer” on our class Think Math board. Students write a question that matches the answer on a sticky note and place it on their class number. There are as many different correct answers as there are students.

#### Think Math: Answer is on the board, students write their question on sticky note and place it on their own student number. Make Circle Map- great way to differentiate. Could incorporate with Kagan Structures as well!

#### I've pinned something like this before, but I also like the set up of this one. Think Math: Answer is on the board, students write their question on sticky note and place it on their own student number. What an awesome multilevel idea!

#### Higher Level Thinking BBD: teacher provides an answer & students come up with the question Would love to try this! Morning math idea

#### Higher Level Thinking BBD: teacher provides an answer students come up with the question. Could easily modify this to equations or expressions. OH the possibilities!

#### Higher Level Thinking Board: teacher provides an answer students come up with the question. Another great idea to share with my math people to incorporate literacy into math.

#### Mrs. Patton's Patch: Bulletin Board and Planter to Higher Level Thinking - The Answer is... Teacher posts the answer, students provide the question/ equation.

#### Higher Level Thinking : teacher provides an answer students come up with the question. Would probably want to model to start with and I would probably use as warm up rather than bulletin board. Could use with any subject -- not just math.

#### Reading in Content Areas #2- Reading is everywhere, even in the math classroom. This fun activity will get students using their brains and using literacy to learn math. A bulletin board will be created in the classroom that will only contain an answer to a problem. Each student will receive an index card, in which they will come up with a word problem that equals the answer on the board. The students will all pin their cards to the board and review each others problems.

#### Math warm ups Higher level thinking - "The Answer Is..." bulletin board

You need as many Post-its as problems you will give, a Sharpie marker, and a pencil. Write the the first problem on the front of a Post-it note at the start (maybe this one is a different color). Now write the answer on another Post-it with a new problem on the underneath (in pencil). Students have to work problems and then search for the answers. Great way to get students doing math and get them up and moving!

math journal ideas

Math journal idea. Start with the answer. Students write an accompanying word problem. For my fourth graders, I would include stipulations such as, you must include multiplication, division, etc.

Great Math idea. Could use different problems created by students later in the year, too. Kids would love to see their problems being presented to the class.

Love this- I do it weekly! Give it a try- your students will amaze you:) Love this for math journals. Jeopardy style to decomposing numbers.

Love this- encouraging creativity from students solving math problems. Would be interesting to see how this could be implemented using a tangible interface like the Sifteo cubes.

Love the idea of having students make a math problem that fits the answer you give them...could be made more difficult for upper grades
