"Doctor" Math

I found this within this article. I wanted to save it because I believe it will be a great way to teach problem solving skills in the classroom while allowing students to be interactive.

Simulation Vocabulary
• Patient = Problem 
• Symptoms = Arithmetic Vocabulary 
• Diagnose = Choose Operation  
• Operate = Solve  
• Final Check-Up = Is The Answer Reasonable? 
Group Roles: 
• Chief of Surgery = Leader – Poses Question 
• Pathologist = Identifies The Facts (Symptoms) 
• Diagnostitian = Chooses Arithmetic Operation 
• Surgeon = Solves The Problem 
• Cardiologist = Ensures That Team Got To The Heart Of The Problem – 
Operation Was Successful
