A teacher-facilitated introduction to two-step problems (addition and subtraction 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.
8 problems and a journal question.
Use in small groups, during guided maths, during tutoring or intervention and with the whole class.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, a recording sheet and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
