Read the instructions and tap in the answer. At this point I would be asking students to solve the problem, using whatever strategy/app/method is the best

Type in the answer. Once the students have got the idea, then I would leave them alone to carry on. A follow up activity would be to get them to create their own problems on a colloborative Google Slide presentation or in PowerPoint or Keynote. These can then be presented to the group for solving at the next session as a warm up activity.
