Limited Capacity filling up

How do students learn to be effective problem solvers? In this session, you'll first learn about ineffective word-problem strategies, such as key words or describing problems by operation. Then, we'll focus on evidence-based strategies -teaching students an attack strategy and helping students understand the structure of word problems. Come ready to do some problem solving!
