I've used these lessons for roughly twenty years with great success! Of course, I have made adjustments and improvements along the along the way and am passing the current version along to you. Math teachers can easily teach valuable close reading and problem solving skills to improve math literacy with these materials.
Solving word problems involving counting principle, permutation, and combination can be difficult for students because of the close reading that is necessary. Analyzing these problems to determine how to solve them requires the teacher to model the thought processes involved by "thinking aloud". The lessons progress through the gradual release model building student confidence while moving them along toward independent mastery of the problems.
This bundle includes a lesson guide, notes and examples, 60 word problems on 4 black and white handouts, animated PowerPoint presentations, and answer keys. Guidance for discussions and suggested pacing is included.
