Math Word Problems are a great way to get your students to practice using math in everyday situations. Use these ideas and you will be able to create your own quickly and easily. Name the object to be shared and the number of people involved. The Grade 3 class at May-berry State School have won a writing competition. 15 pizzas are being delivered to the class. There are 8 slices in each pizza and 25 students in the class.How many pieces can each student eat? How many slices will be left over? This type of problem can be extended by adding more people.If the Grade 3 students decide to share the pizzas with the Kindergarten class, how many pizzas will each student get? There are 21 students in the Kindergarten class. How many slices will be left over?
The game is then played exactly like a normal game of bingo, with the teacher playing the part of the bingo caller, but instead of the teacher calling out the numbers printed on the cards, the teacher instead calls out math problems (the teacher may also write the problem on the blackboard). The student bas task is to solve each problem, and then look for the number on their bingo card. As you can imagine, this can be a lot of fun, and before you know it students can forget they are learning math! What is more, teachers can also easily vary the game play, for example, by using different types of math problems, or perhaps even by asking members of the class to solve each problem before moving on to the next bingo call.
According to the research, solid early mathematics skills are the strongest predictor of future academic success; greater than early reading skills, attention skills, and socioeconomic factors! So what early math skills are most important? The research focuses on "school-entry math skills" such as understanding small numbers (up to 30), quantities, and simple shapes. In addition, being able to count, compare, sort, and describe objects (up to 30) are considered core kindergarten math skills. A host of online tools are available to help young children improve their math and reading skills and technology has made great strides in the past several years in areas related to children has educational software. However, many of the technical advances may be overwhelming for young learners. Websites with 3D graphics and online virtual worlds ("edutainment") may be a useful tool for older children looking to build skills while having fun on the computer. However, younger children can be easily distracted by the overuse of technology in many of these programs.
