Three-M in Word Problem Solving
Hajra, Sayonita Ghosh; Kofman, Victoria
Education, v138 n3 p247-256 Spr 2018
We describe three activities that help undergraduates (pre-service teachers) to develop scientific vocabulary on measurable attributes and units of measurement. Measurable attributes are important features in understanding a word problem and solving the problem. These activities help students comprehend word problems better by identifying measurable attributes and units of measurement. The third activity prompts students to identify symbols as well as deepens students' understanding of symbols used to decontextualize word problems.
