Communicating math and science

A complex problem solving process includes

Defining the problem

Inventorying what information is already known or needs to be acquired

Working on the problem

Communicating their answer and how they reasoned about it

Giving a bunch of similar problems is not the student thinking but rather practicing following steps. Instead of a page of similar problems, try giving students fewer problems that are dissimilar or exceptions. Analyze, contrast, explain, dissect… focusing more on demonstrating thinking rather than following steps.
