Students have been working hard on word problems. Here are a few that we have challenged ourselves to solve:
1. 5 boys share 35 candies equally. How many candies does each boy get?
2. 24 children are put into equal groups. There are 4 children in each group. How many equal groups are there?
We have a math checklist that we have to look at while solving our problem:
- draw pictures
- use numbers
- use words
- use objects (beads, blocks, bead frame)
Ask me what I did to solve my problem!
