  • what the problem is asking
  • what strategy best suits the problem
  • what mathematical knowledge needs to be employed
  • whether the solution makes sense

Throughout the series, students are encouraged to use a variety of different problem-solving strategies, such as:

  • estimating
  • discussions
  • using calculators
  • using materials
  • creating algorithms
