Math - What to do when your child doesn’t understand a word/story problem?


Have your child use the acronym CUBES to read the story problem like a mathematician (see illustration below).  Once your child understands the problem, have him or her select a strategy from the I-math poster. If the strategy he or she selects does not work, he or she should try a different one.  Successful math students portray persistence and resilience which are two extremely important traits that make up one of the eight standards for mathematical practice.
