# Guess And Check Problem Solving

You can also check it out on our MANGO Math You Tube Channel and order the Deluxe Math Crate from our website.Students will use place value understanding to create a multiplication problem that will get them closest to a target number. Students can try various attempt to guess to try and get the target number.

These are all great games that have students guessing and checking to try and come up with the closest answer.

Make sure to check out the other games we have for each grade level in our website,

Example: I hit my wood 200 yards, my iron 35 yards and my putter 5 yards. So I use my wood once, my iron 3 times and my 4 times.

More lessons like this can be found in our Sports and Math Deluxe Math Crate.

Challenge is that students can only use each digit once. 24 x 13 = 312 32 x 10 = 320 20 x 15 = 300 Check out our website for more on our 5th grade Deluxe Math Crate.

Given the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 students see who can create a multiplication equation that gets them closest to the target number. Using a golf course students will understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions.

On the other hand, it can also be cumbersome when used by groups, especially if a largish number of students is involved.

We have, however, found it a useful strategy when students have had trouble coming to grips with a problem.

In this site we have linked the problem solving lessons to the following groupings of problem solving strategies.

As the site develops we may add some more but we have tried to keep things simple for now.
