2-Step Word Problems Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to solve two-step word problems using the four operations. The 2-Step Word Problems learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 3.OA.D.8 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

Represent an unknown quantity as a variable denoted by a letter. Addition and Subtraction within 1000. Problems will include one step of addition or subtraction and one of multiplication of division. Parentheses are included to provide mathematical structure. Must do the operation inside the parenthesis before an operation outside the parenthesis. If multiplication or division is written next to an addition or subtraction, imagine parenthesis around the multiplication or division.

The Order of Operations denotes the rules for solving expressions with more than one operation. The Order of Operations denotes that when solving expressions with more than one operation First solve from left to right operations within grouping symbols, then any multiplication or division, followed any addition or subtraction.

Problems can involve multiple representations and solution. Multiplication and division with an unknown are not expressed as a coefficient. Use the symbols for operations x, between number and variable. May be asked if an answer makes sense mathematically using mental computation and rounding as a strategy. May be asked to choose the best answer based on mental computation and rounding as a strategy.
