Learning to Solve

Math Word Problems

in the 

Primary Grades


an ebook by
Linda Pierce Picciotto

The ebook Learning to Solve Math World Problems in the Primary Grades is a description of a method that Linda has used for many years. Students work on individual blackboards to draw pictures or diagrams to help them solve the "problem of the day." They share and discuss their work and learn that there are many ways to approach the problem.  After a group lesson she gives them work sheets so that they can complete a problem related to the one they worked on together. The book contains over 30 word problems on separate specially-designed forms, ready to photocopy.  Also included is a blank form for teachers who wish to use their own problems or to ask students to write problems of their own.

Her students enjoy these lessons, and they really help them to learn to think logically.
