You can solve all problems from the basic math section plus solving simple equations, inequalities and coordinate plane problems.
Here are four key strategies for solving math problems shared in this lesson: The students should have some time to try their plans and practice their calculations and solution estimates.
Tell the students that mistakes and errors may occur and that it is part of the learning process.
