4th Grade Math - Number Operations: Multiplication & Division

Clip 13/16: Problem 4 - 4th Grade Number Ops Part E


Students are asked to take the words of the story and make a math picture. No question is asked yet. The story is: “Maria saved $24. She saved 3 times as much as Wayne.”

Teacher Commentary
