This worksheet allows students to "dissect" a math word problem and pick out all of the important components. Students will isolate and write down the question and the necessary facts. Then they will move onto showing their work in the workspace. A space for writing their "final answer" in a sentence is also included, as well as a lines space for kids to use words to EXPLAIN how they arrived at the solution. Each section is worth a certain amount of points, so it makes CORRECTING and GRADING their math work EASIER. Kids learn that they can get partial credit for understanding the problem. This is aligned with COMMON CORE standards and testing. A great tool for STUDENTS, PARENTS, and TEACHERS!
