Interested in "flipping" your math classroom? Then you've come to the right place! This file is the guided note sheet companion to the Conquering Math: Understanding Word problems video. The first unit in my Conquering Math for 6th Grade series is available for free as a preview of what you can expect. Check out the other free resources and keep an eye out for additional units and lessons to be added soon.

I use the Understanding Word Problems lesson as the first lesson in my sixth grade math classes each year. It teaches the students how to pull relevant information from word problems, and also provides clear expectations for how to present their answers. This lesson serves an additional purpose as a review of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing multi-digit numbers.
I typically assign both videos in one night. Students watch the lesson video and take notes in the packet, then answer the "Independent Practice" problems in the packet. Finally, they watch the solutions video and correct their work.
