Stoplight Math Problem Solvers will help teachers prepare students for open ended math word problems. Each problem solver requires the student to answer the question asked in written format. On open ended questions, students must write a short sentence, draw a diagram, label tables or objects, or give full explanations of why their answers are reasonable. Answering open ended questions will help students understand math concepts.
Here are some tips that will help you work in this book:
· Read the questions carefully.
· Answer the questions that are asked.
· Make sure your answer makes sense.
· Look for patterns or work backwards.
The word problems in this book are used for concept application and enhance mathematical understanding and higher order thinking skills.
