- Your classes will most likely find problem solving intimidating, so provide class time to work on practice problems to allow opportunities for support
- The lesson represents the 19th in a 20-part series
- This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
- Uses a variety of examples that use different operations and methods of solving
- Provides problem-solving strategies and hints
- Examples are all multiple choice questions while the practice problems are all open-ended
