reSolve: Authentic Problems: Tea Party
This sequence of four lessons presents a purposeful context for counting using the context of planning a tea party. Students consider items required for a small party, draw and count the items and then extend this to a larger party for the whole class. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry special topic 'Authentic Problems'.
