About The Program

A reliable method for analyzing and solving math word problems
Based on strategies the author uses in her own classroom, this series teaches students to identify key words, draw pictures, and disregard unnecessary information. Simple problems are illustrated to provide visual reinforcement. Students then move on to more challenging problems, and in later sections create their own word problems and write explanations detailing the steps they took to solve each problem. The book covers each of the 4 operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
