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
Each book has 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.
