Make assumptions and focus the problem with information and mathematics.
- What information do we already know/need to know to make a model?
- What assumptions do we need to make to build a model?
- What are some important quantities in your situation?
- What mathematical tools could
- you use in your model?
|What do I know||What do I wonder||What information do I need|
If I knew______, I could figure out_______
(For example, If I knew the cost of a school bus for a field trip, then I could figure out the cost of the transportation.
If I knew how many students and chaperones were coming on the trip, then I could figure out the total number of school buses we would need. )
Standard for Mathematical Practices:Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
