Solving Maths Word Problems

Room 25 working on our maths word problems

Room 25 looked at how to solve maths word problems. Our steps are :
1. Read and underline the question.
2.Box key words
3.Circle important numbers - cross out unneeded numbers.
4. Solve - There are many ways to solve the problem depending on the question
- Draw a picture
- Make a chart or table
- Make a list 
- Work backwards
- Find a pattern
- Write a number sentence 

We then discussed as a group and wrote down all the different ways we could solve the problem. As a team we decided which strategy was the most effective.
