Two problems involving grouping invite students to devise their own model and strategies.


We encourage classroom teachers to pose this problem to your students and share their creative solutions. Please include a brief analysis of the specific strategy; examples of original students' work or high-quality digital images; and your name, the school name and address, and your e-mail address.
