Prediction I predict that this sum we will use prior knowledge.
Read: 36 divided by blank =4
Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.
Mathematician’s toolbox: I will be using work backwards.
- 1. I know that 9×4=36.
2. So we should put the 9 in the blank spot.
3. This is what the answer will look like: 36 divided by 9=4
Conclusion: this problem was easy to solve.
