					                    “Be the Expert Bag”
  Take home the Expert Bag the night before it is your day
   to present. Practice teaching someone a way to solve your
   problem. This problem will be a question that you answered
   correctly on the 4th Grade Math Mock EOG.

  Use the four problem solving steps in your explanation:
   (1) Understand the Question
   (Turn the question into an “I need to find out…” statement. Look
   for important words.)
   (2) Gather Information
   (Get information from text. Get information from diagrams, tables,
   and charts.)
   (3) Make a Plan
   (Think about strategies. Choose computation methods.)
   (4) Make Smart Choices
   (Eliminate wrong answers. Try working backward from an answer.
   Check answers for reasonableness; estimate)

  During Morning Meeting, you will teach the class how to
   solve the problem. You can use a dry erase board and a
   calculator in your presentation.
Rubric: Each student will receive a grade based on this
