Then have each group solve one or two problems as you circulate around the room to help.
Working together can help students think creatively as they mull over a problem or two; often, as a group, they may arrive at a solution even if they struggled to solve the problems independently.
Consider going over all of the problems on the board and showing students how to solve them.
Alternatively, break students up into groups—either three or six groups, depending on how many students you have.
They then listen to explanations given by Jake, Kelly, or Astro.
Written explanations also appear on the screen.  SEE MORE This page contains links to free math worksheets for Word Problems.
