Product Description
Fraction Word Problems: Unlike addition and subtraction of fractions, students persistently struggle with word problems involving multiplication and division of fractions and mixed numbers. Though students can solve the problem if told which operation to use, the difficulty lies in knowing which operation to use. The current national expectation that students understand and apply concepts in real world situations makes competence in word problems mandatory. The following strategies have proven to be extraordinarily helpful in eliminating this problem entirely. Students are explicitly taught 3 methods to use when they are unsure which operation is required. These were designed to be used as a weeklong warm up activity that ensures repeated exposure to the topic to obtain mastery. Short and detailed keys are provided as well as an end of week quiz.
