Base ten blocks make problem solving child's play. Students learn basic math concepts like same as and hero zero. They are in a math rich environment. If you want the child to learn math place them in a math rich environment. If you want them to learn Spanish place them in a Spanish rich environment. If science then a science rich environment...etc. Using manipulatives to model math problems turns algebra into a favorite game.

Quite a bit of problem solving goes into building. It may not look like it but quite a bit of problem-solving went into making this structure. 15 is also 9 + 6, and 8 + 7. You can also see 13s. He made a nice pattern with several combinations for 13.

Here is a quick and dirty vid on Problem Solving with equations. Did one take. No edits just let it roll...and then had to cut off the end.

Are primary tools for problem-solving, are Hero Zero & no fun get back to one (NFGBT1).

This page will have much more on story problems soon. I have to start some where so watch this:

Starts with 3x + 2 = 2x + 5

then moves on to 5x + 3 = 4x + 7

and lastly 5x + 3 = 2x + 12

As you can see Problem Solving is EASY when you know how and can visualize it.

Here are three stories to go along the symbols above.

Joe and John are out of town. Joe is two miles out of town and John is five miles out of town. Joe is trying to catch up to John. Joe is walking three miles an hour and John is walking two miles an hour. How long does it take for Joe to catch John and how far out of town are they when he does?

3x + 2 = 2x + 5

Mary and Jane are having a snow ball fight. Mary has three snow balls and Jane has seven. The decide to make an equal amount of snow balls so they can have a fair fight. Jane makes four per minute and Mary makes five per minute until they have the same amount of snow balls, how many minutes did it take and how many snow balls did they each have?

5x + 3 = 4x + 7

Jan and Dan are making pies. Dan has 12 already made, Jan only has 3. They are going to make an equal amount of pies, and they both make the same amount of pies per batch. Dan has two batches to go and Jan has 5 more batches to go before they are done. How many pies do they make per batch and how many will each have when they are done?

5x + 3 = 2x + 12

If you have a Module III Password there is quite a bit more on the password-protected problem-solving page...for a change it's probably easier done than said.

Here is another short video. I didn't get a chance to introduce very many concepts because we got cut off. There is a longer video (45 min) On the other side with the same student. You will notice how she solves the easy ones instantly in her mind now because her subconscious mind had a night to sleep on it. Click enter and put in your password to see that & a whole lot more.

Now that you've gotten a little taste of it, checkout all that you get on the password-protected page. Click the links & watch the short videos. Problem-solving shouldn't be hard it should be ridiculously easy and therefore fun. It also instills confidence in your child because little kids know that algebra is supposed to be hard. On the following pages you'll see children as young as six playing and having fun, while they learn important math concepts. Problem-solving really is child's play Crewton Ramone's house of math!
