Solving word problems can be tricky for students. This video breaks down the process and helps you understand how to write an equation to solve a word problem. This video addresses CCSS 4.oa.3: Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding. You can learn about the CCSS here. You can find accompanying materials and more videos like this one at LearnZillion.
