PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Math ‘problems’ are only problems when put into a context. Without a context, a word problem is only a skills exercise. As teachers, it’s our responsibility to expose our students to a variety of word problems in which students have the skills to comprehend the problem and use their own strategy for solving the problem. Our focus should move away from identifying key words and forcing specific strategies, and move towards giving students the opportunity to critically think.

This resource includes:
*40 real-life world problems with real-life connections and a matching photograph (perfect for projecting or displaying during a math talk or mini-lesson)

*40 real-life word problems (the same as above) on a Problem-Solving Mat (perfect for small-group instruction or a formative assessment)
