When we do this we are learning to work together to solve problems. This can be hard but we are flexible and reflective learners who are trying to be better than before.
This was today's problem...

When I shared them into three equal groups there were two left over?How many cubes might I have in my pocket? What range of possibilities might there be?
|We had to discuss the problem|
|We had to test our theories with materials at times|
|We challenged others' ideas|
|We had to ask others to explain their thinking to us|
