Subject: Explaing word problems to a Grade 3 student
I am tutoring children of different ages. Last time, a boy in Grade 3 could not understand the word problem. Example: Nina had to run 89 meters. After she ran for 15 meters, she fell. How many more meters did she have to run? I tried to draw pictures and graphs, but he did not understand saying that his teacher does the same, but it does not work for him. How I can explain this concept? Thank you! Lena, Edmonton
