Webinar Date & Time: Wednesday, November 10 | 4:00–5:00 p.m. ET • 1:00–2:00 p.m. PT

Outside of the classroom, much of the math we encounter is in the form of word problems. “I’m having 12 people for Thanksgiving dinner. Each person will eat 1.5 pounds of turkey. How big of a turkey do I need to buy?” Yet, inside the classroom, how to solve word problems can leave students and teachers scratching their heads.

Dr. Sarah R. Powell will take on word problems in our upcoming webinar and share:

  • Two ineffective word-problem practices and why not to use them
  • The importance of an attack strategy when working through word problems
  • Common word-problem structures that help students see consistency with word-problem solving
  • How to incorporate an attack strategy and a focus on structure in your math instruction

Empower your students with effective strategies that will help them take on word problems with confidence.

If you’re not able to attend the live event, go ahead and register. Following the live webinar, we will email you a recording to watch at your convenience.
