Math: Deconstructing Word Problems Using Icon Maps
Word problems can be very scary….even for students who are good at math. Using icon maps can help students “decipher” math problems by identifying facts and vocabulary, looking for patterns or pictures, coming up with a plan, and deciding if it all makes sense in the end.
Great for visual learners, EL students, and anyone who avoids word problems because they are just too “wordy.”
Instructions, graphic organizer, and example included.
