This packet teaches students step by step to multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Additionally, it teaches students to solve multi-step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Students also learn to represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity and to assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Along the way examples are provided for each step. At the end, students get the opportunity to practice what they have learned from the tutorial.
Each concept is presented in straightforward language, with several examples. Great for review and remediation, perfect for filling in learning gaps!
