Do your students struggle with word problems like mine? No matter what I have tried (ink thinking, drawing pictures, acting it out, key words) my students consistently struggle with identifying the correct operation.
In this activity students will have 8 problems (4 decimal and 4 fractions) in which they use a graphic organizer to help identify the correct operation (2 of each operation). After completing the graphic organizer students will solve the 8 problems.
Answer key included, aligned to common core 5.NBT.7, 5.NF.1, 5.NF.2, 5.NF.4, 5.NF.5, 5.NF.6, 5.NF.7
