This task was copiedadapted from Lisa Stickland's programme that I really liked. Basically the students pick a decimal number of their choice, and show it in a various number of ways throughout the presentation. It's not a problem solving task, but it's helping my students become more familiar with decimals.
This task is more cognitively challenging than the 'what's my number' task. It requires the students to figure out how many items they can buy, based on how much money they have to spend. What's really cool is that it allows students who want to challenge themselves, a little bit more freedom to do so. This task worked well, however it required a lot more scaffolding than I expected. It will likely be adapted further as I get more feedback from the kids.
