PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 13 slide PowerPoint presentation takes students through the steps for solving word problems. The steps in the PowerPoint presentation are based on Singapore Math strategies including using unit bars to solve problems. There is also a huge emphasis on addition and subtraction key words.

It was created by Elizabeth Hill to use in her third grade classroom but could be used in any grade level 2-5. I used this PowerPoint presentation over a 3 day period, focusing on addition and subtraction on separate days.

See more about how I use this presentation in my classroom and the other activities I incorporate with it at my website

I just purchased Addition and Subtraction Word Problems PowerPoint Presentation and it's not useable. I am using Microsoft Powerpoint for the Mac 2011/ Version 14.0 / 2010.

I don't know how to fix this on my end, is there something you can do on your end?
