TEACHING MATHEMATICAL PROBLEM SOLVING Using MOEMS® Contest Problems
by Jason Frand with Ruth Sabean. Edited by Nicholas J. Restivo & Emma
solving complex, multi-step problems requires both setting a goal and training
to achieve it. While the ultimate goal of a MOEMS® contest is to complete 5
problems successfully in 30 minutes, this training approach spends that same
amount of time teaching how to explore and solve a single problem.
book provides step-by-step instructions for solving multi-step problems. It
was designed to help those teaching complex problem-solving succeed at teaching
it! A problem-solving curriculum for students in grades 4 through 8 is created
using 28 carefully selected Math Olympiad word problems arranged in order of
Mathematical Problem Solving is appropriate for Math Olympiad coaches
as well as teachers and parents looking for enrichment materials for their students.
A Solution Strategy Worksheet, a unique instructional tool that can only be
found in this book, accompanies each problem encouraging students to analyze
the problem and helping them become more comfortable learning from their own
mistakes by exposing them to a variety of both correct and incorrect solution
