Numberless Word Problems
Limited Capacity filling up

How many times have you watched a student read or skim through a word problem and then immediately start computing the answer before you have even had a chance to give directions? In this session we will show you how starting with numberless word problems can put the focus on students taking the time to truly make sense of the problem and understand what actions are being done in the problem. Once they understand these actions they can move towards determining the proper math operation.
