The Go Math program will be supplemented with various resources such as Exemplars, problems of the week, Math Steps and the Everyday Math program. Each student will be required to complete math projects. These projects will not only enable students to synthesize and apply concepts taught during the unit, but will also increase mathematical reasoning and critical thinking skills. Students will be expected to apply strategies and concepts taught to the real world around them. In addition, students will be required to reflect upon their learning in their math notebooks.

MATH PROBLEM OF THE WEEK: DUE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6USE EXEMPLAR JIGSAW RUBRIC TO GUIDE YOUR WORK
Winning Ticket
Task
Last night on my way home from school I stopped at the store to buy a lottery ticket. Although I usually do not do this sort of thing, it had been a great day so I thought I would try my luck. Well, lucky I was! I won! The only problem was, I had to pick between 2 prizes: A) $1,000 all at once or B) $2 on the 1st day, $4 on the 2nd day, $8 on the 3rd day, $16 on the 4th day and so on for 10 days in a row.
Which prize do you think I should choose? How did you make your decision? Can you prove to me that your choice is the best choice?
P.S. If your solution is clear enough, maybe I will share my good fortune with you!

CRAW STRATEGY:
C.R.A.W Help CRAW is a mathematical problem solving strategy that enables students to show how mathematical word problems can be solved in different ways. Each letter stands for the following
C Concrete You can use a manipulative like a counter or blocks to show how you formulated your equation and solved.
R Representational You can draw pictures to show how you formulated your equation and solved. Here, we like to see you represent in more than one way if you can!
A Abstract You can write the equation or write a number sentence to solve. Here, you can also check your work!
W Written You can explain the steps you took to solve and explain your thinking!
