Or even if I did come up with that storyboard if I would run into the same trouble. Because I'm not sure classifying or showcasing different types of reasoning would be one concept as well...Maryhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11924161328076804836noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4055121657510314493.post-46577623266057887002009-03-06T10:16:00.000-05:002009-03-06T10:16:00.000-05:00Could you use story problems as examples of differ...Could you use story problems as examples of different forms of reasoning.I am not exactly sure what I mean but certainly set theory could be used as different form of reasoning.Peggyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11530011450732440130noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4055121657510314493.post-63991167382377841532009-03-02T18:40:00.000-05:002009-03-02T18:40:00.000-05:00ugh!

I love it.<BR/><BR/>Second, let me recommend "The Number Devil" by Hans Magnus Enzensberger. I think you could use it with 7th graders.Gretelhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16850951892715843743noreply@blogger.com
