Hello. I need my algebra assessment done. The only thing you need to do is just answer the questions. thank you.
As you have read this week Math Problem Solving and Application are critical skills for students starting in kindergarten (ATTACHED resources). A research-based strategy for math teachers, starting as early as first grade, is to have students explain the processes they used to solve the problem and support their answer. This is called a Math Proof. It can be as simple as showing the steps on a white board and having the students conduct a Math Talk to walk through the steps of their solution, or as complicated as an actual written paragraph or short essay
Solve the following problem:
A fruit salad consists of blueberries, raspberries, grapes, and cherries. The fruit salad has a total of 280 pieces of fruit. There are twice as many raspberries as blueberries, three times as many grapes as cherries, and four times as many cherries as raspberries. How many cherries are there in the fruit salad?
Write a Math Proof explaining each of the steps you used to arrive at the solution to the problem.
****Reflect, in one to two paragraphs, on your experience writing the Math Proof answer the following questions:
-How does going through this exercise help you to teach the concept of Math Proofs better?
-What struggles did you encounter?
-How can you help your students overcome their struggles?
