Many times, a student understands two-digit multiplication or division with remainders but still has difficulty solving a problem.
Students need to be taught problem-solving strategies
We all know how it important it is to keep students engaged and that’s why we have lots of free teacher resources for you, including several videos on different techniques of solving a math problem. Perhaps, you have Spanish-speaking students in your class and you don’t speak Spanish at all, or, like me, your Spanish is limited to what was yelled at you when you were in trouble (all Latinos in America know exactly what I mean). You will also be pleased to know that we have the Spanish version of said videos as well. Today’s video is on making a hard problem into an easier problem.
