Third Grade Problem Solving - Choose the Operation teaches the students how to recognize the different types of word problems in the four areas of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. When students see a problem they can more easily identify which operation they must use to solve the problem. There is a title slide, focus slide, objective, essential question, samples of types of problems and which operation to use in each, guided practice, checking for understanding, problem solving with word problems, and a reward slide at the end. For best results, students should have white boards and dry erase markers. You may be interested in the following related powerpoint lessons:
