Getting CLOSE with Math Problem Solving & 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.
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.
