    By Naneb

    Clip to ScrapBook
    The problem with teaching kids to look for key words is that they are not always going to help them figure out what process to use. for example the following problem uses the word different but you don't subtract to find the answer Drawing a picture would be the best way to solve the problem. The three little pigs each built their house out of a different material. How many different ways could they arrange their houses?
    The strategies below are much better.
