Consider going over all of the problems on the board and showing students how to solve them.
Alternatively, break students up into groups—either three or six groups, depending on how many students you have.
These ideas which provide you with general steps or strategies to solve math problems, are similar to those expressed in Pólya’s book, "How to Solve It: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method" and should help you untangle even the most complicated math problem.  SEE MORE Math Videos provide problem solving practice for students in grades 3 to 6.
Each set contains five multistep word problems with step by step video solutions.
Then have each group solve one or two problems as you circulate around the room to help.
Working together can help students think creatively as they mull over a problem or two; often, as a group, they may arrive at a solution even if they struggled to solve the problems independently.They then listen to explanations given by Jake, Kelly, or Astro.Written explanations also appear on the screen.  SEE MORE This page contains links to free math worksheets for Word Problems.Word problems are important in math because they help students develop real-world thinking, apply several math concepts simultaneously, and think creatively, notes Thinkster Math.Word problems also help teachers evaluate their students' true understanding of math.If you're behind a web filter, please make sure that the domains *.and *.are unblocked.We’ve recently made improvements to 5th grade math![This expired link is available through the Wayback Machine Internet Archive.]  SEE MORE This is a collection of favorite problems originally created by the members of the TEAM project.All of these problems lend themselves to students telling and writing about their thinking.Includes math problem-solving processes and strategies [This expired link is available through the Wayback Machine Internet Archive.] Can be downloaded as a Word document or PDF.  SEE MORE Word problem practice for students in grades 3 to 5.All word problems use whole numbers but the problems range from single step addition to multi-step equations.
