Getting CLOSE with Math Problem Solving and a Freebie! Friends~Room 331 has been working on solving one and two step word problems. Let me tell you, it has not been easy. I don't know what happens when you mix words and numbers but it sure has my kiddos spinning in circles.
This can be used in my future middle school or even high school classroom. To this day, I still use a variation of this method to solve math problems, so it can be extremely useful for my students as well.
FREE Geoboard Game~ A new twist on a tried-and-true math activity. Students play in pairs to create perimeter and area according to the card that is pulled. Once both players have followed the directions, another card is pulled to determine the winner. Great cooperative game with shared problem-solving!
Question and Answer board - give students the answer and they have to write a word problem that matches the answer. You can have students do any operation or even 2 step problems. I have my students check each other's questions the next day.
