Steps for solving a word problem

Steps for Solving Word Problems:

 

1. Write or re-write the problem using key information.  

2. Underline key words that tell you if you are going to

add, subtract, multiply, or divide.

3. Show your work using numbers or equations

4. Draw a picture, make a numberline, or make a graph to show

your work a second way.

5. Go back and check your work. Show me how you are checking

your work (for example, if you subtracted, then add the two smaller

numbers to see if you get the larger number:

 

35-9=26 26 + 9= 35 (check!)

If you can't think of an equation to check your work, then just

explain in words how you checked your work.
