(Problem Solving is one of the six chapters in The Wonderful World of Math)
The students will be introduced to algebra and will then use it to solve practical word problems. They will be asked to find the missing number in a math problem by using formulas of addition/subtraction and multiplication/division. The student will also learn how to work multiple step problems by breaking them down into smaller, simpler steps.
The Wonderful World of Math was designed to help teach universal life skills and wherever possible, align with the Essential Elements for Special Education Students as part of the Common Core Standards. The reproducible worksheets and activities that will teach cross-content curriculum, vocabulary, reading, writing, oral skills, abstract thinking in addition to math skills.
The worksheets in each chapter start out by introducing a basic skill and progressing to more complex problems as the students learn and practice each new skill. These new skills are broken down into simple steps that allow the student to grasp each new topic with ease. Additional worksheets are included to allow the students to be able to create their own activities. These activities will help the students to practice applying their new skills to meaningful life situations by using their own community specific resources. This will make the experience even more valuable and meaningful for the student.
