During the first semester of school, the 6th grade students learned various math concepts such as integers, order of operation, prime factorization, number lines, operations with decimals and prime and composite numbers. We spent time on how to solve word problems by applying different strategies and using skills taught in class.
As a cumulative first semester activity, the students became the word problem writers! Students created a QR Code Math Booklet of their own that had a total of six problems utilizing the concepts we learned in class. Each problem also included a QR Code with the answer for self-assessment purposes.
After the books were completed, students chose another student’s book and completed the problems. Using a QR Code Scanner, the students checked their work. The 6th graders realized that writing math books is not an easy task!
