### 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
--Detailed math intervention lesson plan using gradual release of responsibility method
--"I Can" statements
--Problem-solving journal with differentiation and reflection opportunities (perfect for center work, homework or as an assessment)
--Addition, subtraction and multi-step word problem banks
--Essential questions, self-reflection stems and discussion prompts
--3 Problem-solving rubrics
--"Hazel Meets the Math Strategy Animals" book

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
