I can...persevere in problem solving.

    I can...plan a solution pathway, rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt.

    Good Morning,

    Chess is the exercise for today! We will work on your "Productive Struggle" through this highly challenging and strategic game. I understand many of you are still learning how to play but that's ok. Just do the best you can.

    Here is your assignment:

    1. Log into chess.com. If you haven't signed up for an account already, go ahead and use your school Google account to sign up.
    2. Read the article about the 10 Most Common Mistakes Among Chess Beginners below.
    3. ARTICLE RESPONSE - Create a Google Doc and list:
    >3 mistakes YOU commonly make
    >3 things you DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE were mistakes
    4. Play minimum of 3 games of chess on chess.com.
    5. Submit in the Google Classroom AFTER you play your games.
    6. In the SAME Google Doc you made for your article response, copy and paste the "notation" for your game.

    NOTE: Games that are less than 10 moves DO NOT COUNT. (White moves then black moves = 1 MOVE).

    Math Standards involved:

    PS.1: Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

    Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway, rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, “Does this make sense?” and "Is my answer reasonable?" They understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches. Mathematically proficient students understand how mathematical ideas interconnect and build on one another to produce a coherent whole.
