**WHAT ARE P.O.W.E.R PROBLEMS?**

**PURPOSEFULย **– These problems are meant to keep students focused, while strengthening initiative and perseverance.

**OPPORTUNITIESย **– These prompts can be used in a variety of ways. P.O.W.E.R problems can be used to introduce a lesson, spiral review, or as formative assessments.

**WITH**

**ENGAGEMENTย **– Problems are real world applicable and designed to hook students with interest and presentation. Complexity of problems promotes problem solving skills.

**RIGORย **– Tasks are specifically designed to challenge students and assess conceptual understanding of curriculum versus procedural understanding. Students will need to apply more than just a โformula.โ

**WHY USE P.O.W.E.R PROBLEMS?**

**BUILD STAMINA WITHIN YOUR STUDENTS!**

P.O.W.E.R problems are designed to challenge your students with their open ended presentation. Majority of problems that come from textbooks and workbooks assess procedural understanding of curriculum. Some textbooks even provide step by step instructions where the textbook is thinking for the students and taking away that โproductive struggleโ for children. When we rob students of that event, we rob them of their ability to reason, problem solve, and see beyond a standard algorithm. P.O.W.E.R problems are meant to show students that there are different ways to answer one question in math. With these tasks students take ownership and are part of the problem solving process versus filling in blanks in a textbook.
