Practice using problem solving strategies by breaking down word problems into a series of visual "stair" steps. Learners restate what is being asked, locate word clues, eliminate unnecessary information, and determine the operation to be used. They practice this strategy independently by completing a related worksheet.
Bring math to real life with this review resource! With five word problems on bars of chocolate, boxes of tissues, and bottles of lemonade, this is an excellent way for fourth graders to apply their math knowledge to real life scenarios. For extra practice, bring in some of these items to demonstrate the equations in class!
Bring math alive with these five word problems. Using multiplication and division in a space for writing equations, fourth graders solve the word problems and practice writing out the answers in a separate area. Helpful as either a homework assignment or as an in-class activity
Fourth and fifth graders solve word problems that entail subtraction of similar fractions without regrouping. They complete magic boxes as a review before participating in a guide instructional activity on solving subtraction of similar fraction without regrouping. Pupils complete nine word problems as an evaluation.
Problem solving strategies and reading comprehension are the focus of this math lesson. Learners use flash cards to drill subtraction facts, read several word problems on the board, and analyze the information given. They then work in small groups to complete a given set of word problems involving subtraction.
Having money problems? How about 19 more? Scholars begin with 10 money-related word problems, some requiring they understand different coin values. They add and subtract for these, and although there are also opportunities for division and multiplication concepts, learners can easily use basic operations if they aren't familiar yet. There are nine money-math number sentences to solve, as well. Remind pupils to add any necessary symbols and units to their answers.
