Predict: I predict this will be about multiplication.
Read: ” Fill in the missing digits, using the digits 1 to 9.”
Clarify: Noting To Clarify.
Strategies: The strategies I used to solve this problem were test all possibility’s, Break problem into manageable parts.
Solve: Firstly, I multiplied 9 x 6 and the answer I got was 54. Then I put the 4 in the missing number box and put the 5 in the top missing number box. After, I put the 9 in the other missing number box.

Predict: I predict this problem is going to be about numbers, division, multiplication and problem solving.
Read: “I Think of a number, multiply it by 3 and then divide by 2. If the result is 18, what was the original number?”
Clarify: nothing to clarify
What’s the BIG Question?: What was the original number that was thought of in the question
Strategies: “Guess, Check and Improve” (Please follow this link to more strategies at my mathematicians-toolbox):http://kaitlin2012.global2.vic.edu.au/maths-toolbox/
Solving Procedure: First, I did a lot of guess check and improving. When I got the answer 36, I then decided that 36 can be divided by 2 to get 18. So then I thought of a number that timed by 3 equalled 36 and that was 12. To finish off with, I made an equation like this: 12×3 divided by 2 = 18 so that my answer could be 12.
Summary: After all i got the answer 12. I used my strategie guess, check and improve. I was very happy to get my strategie I chose right!

Prediction: I predict this question will be about using tables and
Read: “Complete the multiplication table”
Clarify: Nothing to clarify
What’s the BIG question ? Where do the missing numbers go?
Strategies: “The strategies I used were breaking the problem into smaller parts, and do I know a similar problem”
Solving Procedure: Firstly I needed to know what 4 x ? = 12. Then I worked out that the missing number is which was 3 so 4 x 3 =12. Now I have 3 I have to do the sum of 2 x 3 which equals 6. And I still had a missing number at the top of the table. Then I saw the number 8 so I did 6 x 8 =48. The next sum I was up to was 4 x 6 = 24 then 8 x 3 = 24. then I went back down to the 3rd row and did the equation 2 x 6 = 12. After that I went back down to the last row and did the following equations: 8 x 1 = 8, 4 x 1 = 4 and 2 x 1 =2.
Summary: After I solved the problem I saw that I had used all of my strategies r and they were the right ones that worked out for me and they were “breaking the problem into smaller parts and, do I know a similar problem.
