Solve multiple kinds of word problems

**COURSE OVERVIEW**

This is a rigorous course with a strong emphasis on word problems. Every lesson has multiple word problems. It was created for all children but is tailored for the gifted, high achieving, or for the child who simply needs to be challenged (for the record, I believe all children are gifted in their own right). It builds a strong number sense and a thorough understanding of addition, subtraction, addition strategies, and base ten.

Learning can be fun! My students know this well and so will your children. I have taught for almost 20 years. I have put those years of experience into this course to give your child an awesome experience with learning and math. I love when children take pride in knowing how to complete their work.

This course teaches them how to complete their work and the beauty of math. They begin with the concrete using manipulatives, a ten frame, and games to build a strong foundation of algebraic thinking and operations. The majority of the problems they solve will be word problems. They will have a comprehensive number sense through the understanding of number bonds and the relationship between the whole and it's parts. After developing a strong number sense through addition we transition to subtraction.

Their understanding of subtraction will come effortlessly because of their comprehension of number parts through their experience with number bonds. They will learn the most effective way to subtract numbers, and they will learn there is more than one way to solve a problem.

Now that they have an even stronger understanding of numbers and operations, we move into addition strategies. This is where they will learn how to make ten to add larger numbers and use doubles plus or minus one.

Section four is titled Base Ten and I Win. I wanted to give the children the strongest foundation possible and knowing base ten is critical for this age group. As a result, the children will be able to build off of the previous concepts mastered and this knowledge will prepare them for the next level. Math will be easy and exciting for them - as it should be.

Given the opportunity, children typically rise to the occasion. I witnessed this year after year as a public school teacher. You will be amazed at how well your child will perfom given the opportunity to engage in higher level thinking.
