Students know that 2 + 2 = 4 and 2 x 2 = 4. What if they are challenged to discover other number pairs that have an equal sum and product? This seemingly simple question leads to a rich problem-solving task that includes journeys in number sense, representations, functions, and modeling. This task connects many content areas and the Common Core's Mathematical Practices.
