Free! Math Buddy Chat is a step-by-step method for students to solve word problems with a buddy. In this activity, students alternate between working independently and working together as they solve each problem. To make this activity really easy to implement, I created a PowerPoint that you can download and show to your students as you walk them through this 4-step problem-solving method.
The steps in these math story problems were created for the purpose of making sense of a problem, instead of using tricks and key words to solve a problem. Students must understand what the problem is asking them to do before solving it.
