PC-1721 Solving Word Problems with Pictures

Elementary & Secondary School, Reading Level 3.0-3.9

Give students a fool-proof strategy for solving word problems with this complete math program, by Kristina Swann. The addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems are presented in 155 high-interest, "real-life" stories. While solving the basic problems in this 160-page, reproducible binder, students learn and practice a simple, 6-step process that can be used to attack any word problem. Stories are written at a low reading level to accommodate beginning and struggling readers and are appropriate for students of all ages.

Visualize the Math

A unique aspect of this program is the requirement that students visualize and draw a picture to represent the problem. Creating a visual representation of the word problem helps students clearly understand what the problem is about. When students understand what a word problem is about, they can plan an appropriate way to solve it.


As students progress through each level, new challenges appear.
Level 1
Begins with the most basic problems, which contain no extraneous information to distract students.
Level 2
Students identify the distracter in each problem and choose the correct operation from 2 choices.
Level 3

Level 4
Students solve problems in a standardized test format.
