Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Plain calculations are not really math problems at all, merely abstract exercises, the dead answers to some forgotten problem. The true work of mathematical thinking happens when students translate a real or imagined situation into a mathematical expression or equation. And with guided practice, any child can learn to master word problems. 
The stories in Word Problems from Literature--and the companion Student Workbook--progress from simple one-step stories to complex prealgebra stumpers. I explain each solution, showing how bar model diagrams can help children make sense of the situation and reason their way to the answer.

From the Back Cover

Word Problems from Literature features math puzzles for elementary and middle school students from classic books such as Mr. Popper's Penguins and The Hobbit. Denise Gaskins demonstrates step by step how to use the problem-solving tool of bar model diagrams, a type of pictorial algebra. For children who are used to playing with Legos or other blocks--or with computer games like Minecraft--this approach reveals the underlying structure of a math word problem. Students can make sense of how each quantity in the story relates to the others and see a path to the solution.
And when you finish the puzzles in this book, Denise shows you how to create your own word problems from literature, based in your children's favorite story worlds.
