There’s nothing like a well-crafted word problem to help your students get their creative juices flowing, but good word problems can be hard for teachers to create. In this one-hour course, author and teacher Alex Kajitani will equip educators with practical tools they can use to create better word problems in their lessons and leverage reading and writing skills.
Connecting math to literacy helps students relate numbers to the real world and shows them how people use math to make everyday decisions. When students are using multiple parts of their brains to learn, they retain information better.
In this course you’ll discover:
- Why word problems are an important part of math lessons
- How to cultivate mathematical vocabulary
- Word problems without numbers
- Examples of word problem strategies
