Division & Multiplication

Division & Multiplication

Problem solving becomes more complex at this time of year when students are asked to complete multi-step word problems. Begin with problems that have easier numbers, and have your child explain their thought process while working towards a solution. This helps build a foundation for solving more complex word problems with bigger numbers and more operations.
As word problems become more complex, it can be overwhelming for students. Support them by looking at examples with easier numbers to help build confidence in your students as they learn strategies to tackle more complicated word problems. These simpler problems will help build your students' skills as they understand the processes and reasoning involved in solving multi-step word problems.
