Make math meaningful to students. Real-Life Problem Solving uses engaging, kid-friendly lessons to reinforce their problem-solving skills and understanding of mathematics in their daily lives. In real life, the information needed to solve a problem may come from a variety of sources. The books introduce students to this idea.
Student books The skills required in each workbook parallel the Common Core State Standards at grade level. Books are organized into two parts:
Part 1: Teaching Lessons Students will learn the basic process for approaching problem solving, as well as specific approaches for solving eight different problem types. These lessons form the foundation for part 2.
Part 2: Practice Activities Students are ready to apply what they’ve learned from part 1. Each of 28 practice activities presents a real-life situation with related problems to solve.
Teacher's guides An easy-to-use resource for every level includes suggestions for use, identification of problem type(s) for each item, and complete answer key, including exemplary answers for written responses.
