Meaningful Math

Help master problem-solving skills through real-world math applications
Item # Product Description Photo Price


Meaningful Math is a series of reproducible activities designed to help students master problem-solving skills through "real-world" applications. Students are exposed to examples of how math is encountered in everyday life, whether it is figuring out how much to tip in a restaurant or what amount they can save on an item during a department store sale. At the same time, students practice solving word problems correctly using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, percents, and sales tax. Each activity page includes an image of a sign, web page, menu, receipt, newspaper clipping, or other item that can be seen in real life. Students will solve math word problems based on the real-life image.

ONE- and TWO-STEP PROBLEMS Many math word problems must be solved using two or more steps. In this binder, students ease into solving two-step problems. On one worksheet, a two-step problem is broken into two separate questions. Students must use the answer to the first question to solve the second problem. In this way, two-step problems are made simpler and easier to solve for students who struggle with math.

LEVELS Four levels are included in the binder. Level 1 begins with the most basic one-step problems, with the math problem provided. In Level 2, students must solve one-step problems and choose the correct answer from a list of provided answers. In Level 3, students must solve two-step problems and choose the correct answer from a list of provided answers. In Level 4, students must figure out if the problems are one-step or two-step problems, and then solve the problems and write the answers.

INCLUDES A 178-page Binder with Instructions, 160 Activity Sheets, and an Answer Key.
