Is your student struggling with word problem math? Parents often say that the hardest part of teaching mathematics is teaching word problems. Join us for a detailed discussion about HOW to teach a word problem, what skills you as a parent have to contribute to the process, and how to involve your student in active learning. Information shared will be helpful for students of all ages.
Struggling with word problems is often a clue that the concept is not understood. If you haven’t been using the manipulatives in the instruction of that concept, go back and try again with the manipulatives.
Make sure the student can teach back the concept to you to demonstrate understanding before tackling the word problem.
Be sure to use the Instruction Manual. Find the word problem tips in the index of each Instruction Manual. Also, Delta, Epsilon, and Zeta have additional word problems in the Instruction Manual after four of the lessons.
