Be a Detective and find those KEY WORDS!
Let's Find Key Words in our questions. KEY WORDS help us figure out the operations to use. Should I add? Should I subtract?
Should I multiply? Should I divide?
What KEY WORDS do I see?
WE CAN SOLVE ANY WORD PROBLEM!!!!
When we read a word problem we follow these steps. R READ - We READ the question TWICE.
1st time just to hear it. 2nd time to circle KEY WORDS in the question.
D DRAW - Next we draw a PICTURE to show our work. W WRITE -Then we WRITE our answer in a math sentence with LABELS.
So, if we READ, DRAW & WRITE we can solve any problem!
