Finally! It took me a year but I finally was able to combined my C.G.I and Math Attacks for the entire year in one book! The book is over 600 pages and includes over 250 word problems!
Each C.G.I problem increases in difficulty and a structured space to work out the problem. At the beginning of the year, the students will fill in the blanks using math vocabulary. At the end of the year they should be writing an explanation of how they solved their math problem in complete sentences using math vocabulary. Each C.G.I word problem also has one with blanks to allow you to customize the difficulty of the problem and to adjust for individual students.
I came up with the idea for Math Attacks after listening to a S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) presentation. At this one school, each teacher presented the class with a math word problem every day. The students had to solve the same problem 2 to 4 different ways. I thought it would be a great addition to my C.G.I math program at school and it was a hit! My kids love these!
