First Day of September Problems in your Math Classroom

  • something that doesn’t require too much content specific knowledge (you wouldn’t expect kids to pull out Pythagorean Theorem right after summer, for example)
  • something that gets kids reasoning
  • something that has an interesting context. Actually, I am okay if you start with a “cookie” problem. But you can probably do better than cookie fractions or cookie operations on the first day
  • something that activates kids’ intuition, or estimation sense, or just their logical sense in general.
