I used the form to introduce Only Son and Youngest Daughter to the sometimes confusing, sometimes exciting world of math word problems.
This is how it looks like:
|The whole worksheet|
|The left side of the worksheet|
|The right side of the worksheet|
Not the clearest of photos, 'sorry about that.
These are the steps that I included in the workout sheet:
B. Required/ What is asked for
~ Word sentence/ Equation
D. Final answer
It may seem to take up so much space for just one problem, but I think it is helpful in teaching the child the steps to think through a word problem in an uncluttered manner. After he has acquired the discipline, he will be needing much less white space.
Just thought I'd share something that worked for us :-)
