Solving Word Problems. Math in Action. Workbook.
Echaore, Susan D.; Roderman, Winifred Ho
This workbook was designed as an easy-to-read, slower-paced text for students who have learning, reading, and language problems. As one of five workbooks to aid low achievers in problem solving, it focuses on strategies for solving one step and multistep word problems in mathematics. Students use skills learned in the four previous workbooks in the series. A six step plan of action is stressed. Questions within the text repeatedly involve the students' attention, and their learning is checked and reviewed within each lesson. Word problem situations reflect mathematical problems that students might actually meet. Worksheets to accompany the workbook are available in the teacher's guide. The five units in the workbook are entitled: A Math Plan of Action, Putting Things Together, Finding Parts of Amounts, More Than One Step, and Some Special Kinds of Problems. A page on Math Plans of Action lists suggestions for solving one step and multistep problems. (MNS)
