A teacher-facilitated introduction to two-step problems (multiplication and division only) where students learn to identify the ‘hidden’ question.
Students discover that two-step problems have a hidden question that must be answered first before the problem can be solved.
Then they rewrite problems with two questions into a typical two-step problem format and solve two-step problems.
