Primary 5 CCKPS (1)

Observation - students raced through each problem indicating that they had no difficulty in reading and comprehending the word problems given. They seemed to thrive on higher-order questions the teacher threw at them eg how are the methods alike, how are they different, which is better, which one would you use.

Less is More
Instead of doing five problems, one anchor tasks will do the same thing and perhaps more.

"Ali, Ben and Cheryl share some money in the ratio of 4:2:1.

What if $28 is the greatest amount?
What if $28 is the total amount?
What if $28 is how much more Ali received than Ben?
What if $28 is how much Ali and Ben received? What is the greatest number of 50-cent coins Ben has? What is the greatest number of 20-cent coins Ben has? What if how much Ali and Ben has is not $28 but $432? In this case, what is the least number of coins Ben has?
