Word Problems
Day 81
 We’re going to start solving problems with our math facts. We’ll keep playing games too, so we don’t forget the facts!
 We’re going to figure out the problems together at first.
 Let me give you an example of what a Word Problem is. Usually you do your math like this: 6 + 4 = ? Let’s make that into a word problem.
 Let’s say you have six people in your family. Another family with four people in it come over for dinner. How many people will be sitting at the table?
 That’s a word problem. You need to figure out the answer, so you know how many chairs and plates you’ll need to set up.
 How do you figure it out? You have 6 people plus 4 more come. That’s 6 plus 4. 6 + 4 = 10 That’s your answer.
 Now your turn. Here’s the word problem.
 Ned rode his bike 7 miles to the library.
He took a shortcut on the way home which was only 5 miles long.
How many miles did Ned ride altogether?  I’m going to give you a hint. When a problem says altogether, you are going to add to find your answer. Before we add, let’s start with a picture.
 Take a piece of paper. Draw Ned on one side. Draw a library on the other side (it can just be a square.) Put your finger on Ned. Your finger is Ned. Now move your finger up and over and to the library. How far did Ned go so far? How many miles? Read the problem to find out. (answer: 7 miles) Write the number on the paper.
 Now move your finger straight back home. How far did Ned go to get back home? Look at the problem and find the number. (answer: 5 miles)
 Leave a space next to the seven and then write the number.
 Now let’s do it altogether. Put your finger on Ned. Go 7 miles to the library and 5 miles back home. How far did Ned go altogether?
 He went 7 miles plus 5 miles more. Write a plus sign between the 7 and the 5.
 What’s the answer? Go type it in and click on Check. Then click on Show Answer.
 Now, he didn’t go 12 centimeters or 12 feet. He went 12 miles. In a word problem it is VERY important to label your answer, write the word that you are talking about (like miles for this problem).
 You solved your first word problem. Way to go! Now you can play a game.
 Ned rode his bike 7 miles to the library.

 Here’s your new word problem.
 Anne ate 6 cookies.
Samantha ate 4 more cookies than Anne.
How many cookies did Samantha eat?  Draw a picture or use legos as cookies. You need 6 cookies. Draw 6 cookies or lay out 6 “cookies.”
 Who ate that many cookies? (answer: Anne)
 Who ate the most cookies? Read the problem carefully to find the answer. (answer: Samantha)
 The problem tells us that Samantha ate more cookies than Anne.
 How many cookies did Samantha eat? How do we figure it out. We know she ate 6 cookies, just like Anne, but then she ate more. How many more? (answer: 4 more)
 Add 4 more cookies to your drawing or lego collection.
 How many cookies did Samantha eat? Write the number equation. That means write the problem with numbers and no words. (answer: 6 + 4 =)
 Type in your answer and check it. Type in the number and the label, the word you are talking about (cookies this time). First you will have to click on the arrow to change it to the second problem (2/5). That means second out of five problems.
 Is this what you wrote? (answer: 10 cookies)

 What should do first? Let’s draw a picture.
 Draw two people. Draw one stick person on one side of the page and another stick person on the other side of the page.
 Draw 5 stickers under one and 9 stickers under the other.
 How many stickers does Henry have now? (answer: 9 stickers)
 Before he had those nine stickers plus all of the stickers he gave his brother. Write this word problem as an equation, as a number problem. Don’t look at the answer until you’ve written the problem with numbers instead of words. (answer: 9 + 5 = )
 How many stickers did Henry have at first, before he gave any away? Click on the arrow to find the third problem (3/5) and then enter your answer with a number and a word label. The word label for this problem is stickers.

 Here’s your next word problem.
 Derek and Larry have 15 books together.
6 of the books belong to Derek.
How many books does Larry have?
 Derek and Larry have 15 books together.
 What do we do first? (answer: Draw a picture.)
 Draw a picture of 15 books. (You can just make a line for each book. It doesn’t have to be a pretty picture.) Or, you can get out 15 legos and pretend they are the books.
 Your fifteen books are Derek’s and Larry’s. Right now they are all together in one big pile.
 Now, look at the problem. How many of the books are Derek’s? (answer: 6 books)
 Count out six legos and put them in a separate pile. Or, circle six books in your picture. Those are the ones that belong to Derek.
 Who do the rest of the books belong to? (answer: Larry)
 So, how many books does Larry have? Count them up. That’s the answer.
 But how do we get that with a number problem. What kind of problem is it when you have a lot and then take some away? Is it an addition problem or a subtraction problem? (answer: subtraction)

Day 116
 Do you remember how to tell time? Do you remember the hour hand is the short one and the minute hand is the long one? Do you remember that when the hour hand points to the three and the minute hand points to the twelve we say, “Three o’clock.”
 Let’s see if you remember. Play this quick game.
 Now look at these clocks. The minute hands are all pointing to the six. That means “thirty minutes.”
 Find the right time.

Day 117
 Remember how to count by fives? Watch the video.
 Now look at this clock face. Each of those big numbers stands for an hour. If the hour hand is pointing to the two. It is two o’clock. If it is after the two (but not to the 3 yet) then it is 2 and some minutes. Let’s figure out how many minutes.
 Point to each number as you count by fives. Point to the 1 and say “five.” Point to the 2 and say “ten.” It takes five minutes for the minute hand to move from one number to the next, so we count by fives when we are counting minutes. Count by fives all the way around the clock. When you get to the 11 you should be at 55 minutes. Did you count correctly?
 Now count around the clock again!

 This ruler looks different. It’s is still a centimeter ruler. The centimeters are marked with a longer line and the number to the left of it. In the middle of each centimeter is a shorter line. That’s halfway between. That’s a half a centimeter from the last marker. If the red line stops at a middle line, then the length is the number of centimeters before it plus one half. If the red line stopped at a half a centimeter more than three, then the answer would be 3.50 . (It’s kind of like $0.50 is halfway to a dollar. $3.50 is halfway between $3 and $4.)

Day 157
 Make a picture of the number 16 online.
 Go the manipulatives page. Click on Manipulatives and choose “Bears in a Boat.”
 Each boat holds ten bears. Drag one boat out onto your white board. Fill it up. Now you have ten. How many more bears do you need to make 16? Drag more bears onto the empty part of the board.
 You have 1 ten and 6 ones.
 Now make a picture of the number 23. You need two tens, or two boats. (Click on the boats and then click on the minus () magnifying glass to make them smaller so there is room.)
 Make two tens and then add three more bears to make 23.
 You have 2 tens and 3 ones.

Day 158
 Count the objects. Count the number of lines of tens. Then count the ones.
 Count the tens and then the ones.
Day 159
 Write the number. Choose the right number of tens. Then choose the right number of ones.
 “Write the value of the tens and ones. For example, in 24 the 4’s value is just 4 (picture 4 blocks), but the 2 is really 2 tens which is 20 (blocks). If the problem underlined the 2, you would write 20. An easier way to do it is to read the number out loud. We say TWENTY – four. The 2 isn’t just a 2, it’s twenty.”
Day 160*
 Today we are going to separate tens and ones into addition problems. Here are some examples.
 11 = 10 + 1 It’s just like counting the groups of ten first and then adding on how many ones are left.
 17 = 10 + 7 Seventeen is one ten and seven ones.
 25 = 20 + 5 The number twentyfive is two groups of ten (20) and five more ones.
 34 = 30 + 4
 75 = 70 + 5
 81 = 80 + 1
 *Do you think you could do it? Complete the worksheet on tens and ones in expanded form (Day 160 worksheet).

 When you add ten to a number, you just have to add 1 to the number in the tens spot.
 Watch this presentation on adding tens. It will play automatically and talk to you.

 40 + 10 = 50 You start with 4 tens. That’s 40. Then you add 1 ten. 4 tens + 1 tens = 5 tens. 5 tens is 50.
 35 + 10 = 45 The number 35 has 3 tens. Then you add 1 ten. 3 tens + 1 ten = 4 tens. The ones stay the same. We added nothing to the ones, so the answer is 45 .
 *Give it a try. Complete the worksheet on adding tens (Day 166 worksheet).
Day 167*
 *Do your review worksheet (Day 167 worksheet).
Day 168*
 Watch this presentation on subtracting tens.
 *Complete the worksheet on subtracting tens (Day 168 worksheet). It’s what you did yesterday. Here are some examples.
 20 – 10 = 10 (2 tens – 1 ten = 1 ten)
 23 – 10 = 13 (2 tens – 1 ten = 1 ten You aren’t taking away any ones, so that number stays the same.)
 47 – 10 = 37
 50 – 20 = 30 (5 tens – 2 tens = 3 tens)
 56 – 20 = 36 (5 tens – 2 tens = 3 tens You aren’t taking away any ones, so that number stays the same.)
Day 169*
 *Look at your worksheet for today (Day 169 worksheet). It’s only adding but it uses bigger numbers. It’s the same thing, though. You can do it. Let’s look at a couple of examples before you start.
 40 + 80 = ? 4 tens + 8 tens = ?
 What is 4 plus 8? (answer: 12)
 So the answer is 12 tens. How do you write that?
 Well, how do you write 6 tens? You add a zero and write 60.
 How do you write 4 tens? You add a zero and write 40.
 How do you write 12 tens? You add a zero and write 120.
 Let’s try one more. 90 + 50 = ?
 9 tens plus 5 tens
 9 + 5 = 14
 14 tens is 140
 90 + 50 = 140
Day 170*
 *Complete the subtraction worksheet (Day 170 worksheet). It’s just like Day 169 but with subtraction. Here’s one example.
 130 – 80 = ?
 13 tens – 8 tens = ?
 13 – 8 = 5
 13 tens – 8 tens = 5 tens
 130 – 80 = 50
Day 171*
 Watch this presentation on subtracting tens and ones.
 *Try some. Complete Part A of your worksheet for today (Day 171 worksheet).
 Sometimes there is no ten in the bottom number, so you only need to subtract the ones.
 Here is an example.
 46 – 3 = ?
