A math problem is a mystery with a missing ending.
Math challenge: How will you solve the problem?
Story-telling challenge: How will the characters deal with the conflict? How will the story end?

Submit your draft. Include (1) a sketch, (2) the text of the problem, and (3) Mathematical concepts covered in the problem.

Day 2
Make a poster (jobs - 1) type /write and submit the problem; 2) write the solution; 3) draw pictures and list math concepts.)
See a sample problem with solution here: Two_Tales_Math_Problem_Solution.doc
Solve a problem created by your peers.
