IALT: Reflect on how I worked it out with this question.
I am going to be reflecting on about how I worked out this question using my strategies to figure out the answer. This was my question, 'Emily bought 12 packets of hair ties. There were 4 hair ties in each packet. emily, Millee, and Sam all worked out the total number of hair ties differently'. And one of these strategies will have the right answer for this word problem. The first one was Emily's strategy. 'I know that 12 x 2 is 24. So 12 x 4 is double 24. 12 x 4 = 48'. Next is Millee strategy. 12 x 4 = 4 x 12 4 x 12 = (4 x 10) + (4 x 2) = 40 + 8 = 48. And the last strategy is Sam's. '12 x 4 = 4 x 12 = (5 x 12) - 12. 5 x 12 = (5 x 10) + (5 x 2) = 50 + 10 = 60. 12 x 4 = 60 - 12 = 48. One of the best strategy that I liked is Millee strategy. The reason why is because he/she is using times table to answer it in a different way than using Addition and Takeaways. And also using a bracket to solve the answer faster.
That is alll for today I hope you enjoyed this blog post
