Math Intervention Problem-Solving Unit {Brian Break Apart Badger}
Product Description
Math Intervention: Our CCSS aligned math intervention unit provides 14-20 days worth of differentiated problem-solving activities to give students the strategies they need to solve word problems. Perfect for general education, special education, RTI and math intervention! Can be used with students in grades K-3.

Brian the Breaking Badger is a strategy animal in the Problem-Solving Pond series. Brian helps students use place value knowledge to decompose or break each number apart into hundreds, tens and ones. Depending on the problem, Brian teaches students to add or subtract each place value (first hundreds, then tens, and finally ones). Students will then add or subtract all numbers to solve the problem. When students use the breaking apart strategy, they strengthen mental computation, build number sense and solidify foundational place value skills.

Brian uses a special rhyming poem to teach the students how to use the breaking apart strategy to solve a variety of story or word problems. Brian's unit includes:

--Introduction to Problem-Solving Pond Unit
--Suggestions for Use
