FREE Operation Situations Printable for Analyzing Math Word Problems


Want to teach your students to analyze word problems for meaning? 

The use of keywords focuses on looking at the words of math word problems in isolation and not in the context of the problem. Focusing on the word problem as a whole allows students to become better at solving math word problems.

Tina Cardone, author of “Nix the Tricks,” a guide to avoiding non-conceptually developmental short-cuts, suggests having students think about the words of the problem as a whole and focus on what is happening in the problem in context. Students can accomplish this by visualizing the situation and creating a mental picture of the actions that are taking place. Once they understand the actions, students can then connect them to symbols.

After students have had experience with a variety of problem situations, some patterns will begin to emerge as students begin to recognize recurring themes, such as joining, part-part-whole, separating, comparing, equal groups, sharing, and measuring-- the operation situations.

Head on over to The Routty Math Teacher website to read more about the dangers of keywords, the power of the operation situations, and strategies for how to help students visualize a word problem. Find it here!
