Our Keywords for Word Problems lesson plan teaches students strategies for recognizing important keywords in word problems. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to write their own word problems that use some of the keywords introduced in this lesson. Students are also asked to solve practice word problems that contain these keywords, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material and which keywords refer to which operations (multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction).
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify keywords in word problems.
