Essential Question
It can sometimes feel overwhelming to be a kid when there are so many problems in the world. After all, kids can't really make a difference, right? Wrong! Kids are making a positive change in the world every day. Now you have the opportunity to make a change. Choose a problem you care about and create an original solution! Let’s get started and make a difference!
Students will be able to….
· Demonstrate an understanding of creative problemsolving skills
· Develop and apply the following problemsolving techniques and skills to achieve an outcome or solution to authentic problems:
· Identify problems
· Formulate hypotheses
· Generate ideas
· Employ deductive reasoning
· Choose and apply solutions
· Ask and clarify openended research questions and develop a plan for answering them.
· Determine, locate and explore the full range of reliable sources addressing a research question
· Systematically gather and organize relevant information

Process Skills in Math:
(A) apply mathematics to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace;
(B) use a problemsolving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problemsolving process and the reasonableness of the solution;
(C) select tools, including real objects, manipulatives, paper and pencil, and technology as appropriate, and techniques, including mental math, estimation, and number sense as appropriate, to solve problems;
(D) communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate;
(E) create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas;
(F) analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas; and
(G) display, explain, and justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical language in written or oral communication.
