Word Problem Madness

The best way to solve a word problem is to read it from the bottom to the top.

If you know what the question is and THEN read the information, it helps to make the problem more simple.

Once you know what the question is, then you have to determine the operation or operations.

Then you have to decide how to solve it: equations, pictures, graphs, charts, guessing, etc..

The websites below give you an opportunity to practice with word problems:

Our Classroom

In our classroom you will find community, consistency, cooperation, tradition and students who are self directed.
We have three basic rules:

1. Respect Yourself
2. Respect Others
3. Respect Your School

We will meet as a class and decide what these rules mean for us and then we will create our own sub-group of rules under each of the three previously stated rules.

Behavioral expectations for the children are clearly defined and the consequences are also explained to each child. In our classroom we operate on a 100 point system each day. At the end of each day, you will receive a behavior report from our classroom notifying you of how many points your child earned for the day. Please sign the report, comment if necessary and return it with your child the following day.
