Consider: There were 4 jackets left on the playground on Monday and 5 jackets left on the playground on Tuesday. \"Left\" in this problem does not mean subtract.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e2.
Key words encourage students to ignore meaning and look for a formula.

So if you have 12 rows and each of those rows have 6, this is really 12 times 6.
They tell us he plants a total of 12 rows-- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. Well, you could do this exercise and then try to count all of these carrots. Luckily for us, we have multiplication as a tool that we can use. With my eldest daughter, once I realized how much she struggled with math when it wasn't written down in a nice neat equation, I often walked through a math problem with her (doing most of the work myself) and then provided her a few regenerations of the same problem with different numbers for her to do solo.After a few weeks of this, she was able to do them without the walkthrough from mom. " fairly quickly so confidence building is important -- if she thinks she can't do something she can't -- if she thinks she can do something she can.Students must be able to solve problems of any situation.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Problem Solving everyday\u003c/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e Problem solving is not an isolated activity.

However, any 1st grader should be able to solve the problem by thinking and drawing a picture or building a model.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e3.It sends a bad message.\u003c/strong\u003e The most important strategy when solving a problem is to make sense of the problem and to think.
