As we are finishing up our study of multiplication and divison of fractions I am beginning to see some problems. I am not trying to be funny but some of you guys have problems with word problems. Today we are going to talk about our recipe cards we made yesterday and how they will help us answer our Short Response Questions. WAIT!What good is to know how to write an answer if you cannot understand the question? So today we are going to focus on working word problems. We are going to start off simple and work our way up to the more difficult problems that we will likely see on our test at the end of the school year.
The following 2 websites are packed with information and word problems.
