Class Experience

Students will learn how to solve addition and subtraction word problems methodically and creatively. We solve problems based on simple 4-step approach:
1. Question: What question is the problem asking?
2. Information: What relevant information do we know?
3. Calculation: How do we calculate our answer?
4. Solution: What is our solution statement? Does our answer make sense?
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mathematics from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, and have spent the past 12 years teaching and tutoring math students of all ages.
Learners should have a pencil and paper to help them solve problems if needed.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
