      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.

    • Robin Griffin

      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.

    • Rebecca Nelson

      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.

    • Kayla Barao

      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.

    • Cherie Critz

      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

    If you teach middle or high school math - I highly recommend spending a chunk of time looking through the lessons. They are amazing! All lessons use common core standards with real world problems. Great many movies can you see in one day, justify answer with viable argument.

    Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer.

    Math - "show your work means..." anchor chart

    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!
