This book is a continuation of Math Reasoning Book 1 and Book 2. Book 3 has review word problems from both Book 1 and 2. These Word Problems are perfect for practicing solving and working with different types of word problems. These Words Problems have several 3rd Grade problems requiring addition, subtraction, multiplication, or rounding. The rubrics allow students to use different strategies to solve each word problem. The word problems range from one-step to multiple-step solution. The booklet contains word problems aligned that are aligned with Common Core. Students can work independently or with a partner. In my classroom I first have students work with a partner to allow them an opportunity to explain/discuss how they solve the word problem.
You can have students work out the problem by themselves then they partner up and take turn explaining how they each solve the word problem.
The teacher can call on different students who had different strategies on how they solved the same word problems.
SBAC requires students to not only be able to solve a math problem but also to be able to give a clear and logical explanation of their thinking process. These books give students plenty opportunities to not only practice and review the standards but also practice their thinking process.
