In the Lesson 7 video Ms. Swartz mentions pages of word problems that we are to print out so we can work the bar modeling problems with her. Where are those pages? I cannot find them on the course site.
Hi! I'm wondering if we could see a copy of the book mark she mentions? Sounds like a helpful tool.
Yes! I was wondering about that, too! I did write down the problem-solving steps, but I thought she said her bookmark had 7 steps and I only copied 6. Maybe she'll flash the bookmark again, closer to the camera, and I can pause the video to get a better look.
Here are the steps I got:
1. Read the problem aloud.
2. Rewrite the question as a statement with a blank for the answer.
3. Determine if this is a part/whole problem or a comparison problem.
4. Draw your bar model.
5. Write the number sentence.
6. Put the answer in the final sentence.
I have the same question as Hilary. I am not finding the word problems that Dawn is referring to in Lesson 7.
We have emailed Dawn and asked her to send us an image of her bookmark!
