Defining Problem Solving
  The Problem-Solving Standard | Organizing Data | Draw a Diagram or Make a Model | Organize the Data in a List, Diagram, Table, or Graph | Generate and Eliminate Candidates | Additional Problem-Solving Strategies | Low Threshold, High Ceiling Problems | Summary | Your Journal

 
 

Problems that can be adapted for multiple ability levels provide a way to engage every student in a class. These problems are sometimes referred to as "low threshold, high ceiling" problems because all students can understand the problem and solve some part of it (low threshold), but even the highest-ability students in the class will not easily complete it (high ceiling). Rich problems can also be extended to allow students to explore more mathematics.
