An inventive way of solving math word problems is presented here. Pupils use something called the "Act it Out" strategy which has them, literally, act out the problem or draw pictures to help them solve it. The activity is geared toward gifted and talented students, so this strategy is not for everyone. The math problems all involve certain numbers of pupils, so learners from the class take on the persona of one of the pupils in the problem. An inventive idea for gifted and talented learners.
