Discuss the problem using guide questions (STAR Strategy)
Search the Problem:
What is asked in the problem? What are the given facts? What operations should be used?
Translate the Problem:
What is the mathematical sentence/equation?
Answer the Problem:
What is the answer/solution to the problem?
Review the Solution:
Does the answer make sense? Does it answer the problem?
Explain the solution using block model and/or algorithm.

Discuss another problem.

 36 sacks of rice will be delivered to the affected towns. 1/6 of these will be delivered to Ajuy. How many sacks of rice will be delivered to Ajuy?

Give pupils the freedom to choose block model or traditional algorithm in solving the problem.
