The Real-World Problem Solving Readers are unique in that they feature math problems throughout each story. Each reader has a set of 4 to 6 questions. Students are expected to return to the story and find information in the text or in charts, tables, or graphs to answer the questions.
Just as solving problems helps students make sense of the world around them, justifying and explaining their solutions to a particular problem enables them to develop and expand their reasoning skills. Real-World Problem Solving readers provide numerous opportunities for the student to read the story and then solve problems, including problems at the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy or the Depths of Knowledge.
