The Mangoes Problem--A Problem-Solving Activity

Here is a royal lesson which presents a challenging math word problem for your charges. Learners must work together to develop strategies they can use to determine how many mangoes are left in the castle kitchen. The lesson offers concrete strategies for the groups to utilize in order to solve the problem. Plenty of good oral communication around the problem is required. An excellent multiple-step real-life application math lesson!

Lesson Planet has not only provided me with lesson plan ideas but it also has given me the inspiration to create more inquiry-based lessons for my Biology students.
