We each chose a problem that was appropriate for our classroom. 
Each of our classes had solve the problems by using different types fo strategies. Direct model, tchart, counting by 8's, algorithms, used counters 
LM Megan had 3 markers. Robert gave her 2 more markers. How many markers did Megan have altogether.
MB Ms. Baker had 6 bags of candy, there are 8 pieces in each bag. How many pieces of candy does she have?

4/8/2010

Linda met with CGI Year 1 team

shared making change problems
