You have the two rates: 1 oz/minute and $11.20/ 1000 gal. We will assume the time frame of 30 days, since this is how often water meters are read. We will use these to cross-multiply and find out how much is spent on water.
30 days (24 hours/1 day) (60 minutes/ hour)(1 ounce/ 1 minute)(1 gallon / 128 ounces)($11.20/ 1000 gallon) = $3.78.
Critical and creative thinking is something we cannot ignore if we want our students to be prepared for a workforce and world that is constantly changing.
Not only does it equip then for the future, it promotes higher levels of student engagement, and makes mathematics more relevant and meaningful.
Learning becomes more meaningful and purposeful for students.
There are many tools and many methods of promoting thinking.Please include your name, contact information, and the name of the title for which you would like more information. Video Series: Current Educational Issues Video Series Publisher: Foundation for Critical Thinking Length: 59 minutes Format: VHS or DVD With Alan Schoenfeld and Richard Paul., this booklet includes author Diane Ronis' wheel of problem-solving strategies, plus a seven-step process for approaching and solving complicated problems-giving students a variety of ways to approach, analyze, and think critically about mathematics problems.Should you need additional information or have questions regarding the HEOA information provided for this title, including what is new to this edition, please email [email protected] students see mathematics as black or white, right or wrong.They need to learn to question, to be critical, and to be creative.Secondly, teachers need to think critically and creatively about their practice as teachers of mathematics.We need to be reflective practitioners who constantly evaluate our work, questioning curriculum and practice, including assessment, student grouping, the use of technology, and our beliefs of how children best learn mathematics. Further compounding the problem, critical and creative thinking are, at best, ill-defined. Obviously, this is not helpful – if the math processes are the actions of doing math, it makes sense then that these actions will, at times, encompass critical and creative thinking.
