Multiplication & Division Word Problems - I use this organizer format as my students start learning how to solve both multiplication and division word problems. It is extremely important for students to visualize the problem, pick out key words and figure out their operation, solve it correctly, and finally be able to explain how they got their answer. My students love using this organizer. This is also the 1st year that my students are excited about being able to explain what they did using math vocabulary.
