This student, parent (and teacher!) handbook focuses on each of the common addition and subtraction situations as set forth in the Common Core.
In this handy packet, a word problem example is given for each type of word problem. A Bar Model is also provided for each word problem example.
Based on Singapore Math Strategies, A Bar Model is a learning tool
designed to help students solve math word problems accurately and efficiently. Bar Models help students to model mathematical relationships and identify known and unknown quantities. A Bar Model provides students with a powerful image that organizes information and simplifies the problem solving process.
This packet uses adorable Melonheadz Fairy Tail/Dragons/Wizard clip art along with the exact numbers used in the Common Core examples.
A great resource for parents who are just getting familiar with the Common Core!
