## Go Math Review

With a strong, standards-aligned conceptual approach, a wide array of multisensory activities, an understandable teaching style and offering plenty of revision and review, Go Math can be a highly effective K-8 math program to help students develop their math skills in a less stressful and more engaging manner.

What We Like

But watch out for …

## What Is Go Math?

Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Go Math is a series of math curricula aimed at elementary and middle school students that is available for both homeschools and traditional schools.

The series teaches common core math with a strong emphasis on understanding, vocabulary and application and does so using a combination of workbook exercises, critical reasoning, hands-on activities, discussions and frequent review.

## What Ages Or Grades is Go Math Intended For?

Go Math is intended for students in K-8 and the standards-aligned program ultimately covers everything from basic numeracy to geometry and statistics.

Homeschools can, of course, use the program above or below its intended grades, and given its very straightforward instruction, multisensory lessons and strong emphasis on repetition and review, we feel Go Math can actually be a particularly good choice for older students who are a bit behind in their math studies to work with.

The series follows a traditional grade progression and makes obvious references to each grade on the cover, however, which is something that parents of older students using it as a remedial resource might need to think about.

On the other hand, this can make it a lot easier for homeschooling families switching into the curriculum from another to know where to start.

It should be noted, though, that without a formal placement test those coming from a less traditional or non-common core program may have to spend a little time going through each grade’s scope and sequence and pay attention to each lesson’s pre-learning assessment of knowledge to make sure no gaps exist.

## What’s Required To Teach Each Grade?

Go Math is fairly traditional as a math curriculum in the materials it uses, really only requiring a teacher’s edition and a student edition.

As a result, it can be considered fairly compact, with not a lot of stuff that parents will have to buy, store and keep track of over the course of a year.

## Teacher’s Edition

Go Math’s Teacher’s Edition is a full color and very visual softcover book that contains pretty much everything a parent would need to teach the program at home.

The books contain the program’s teaching material, including well-detailed explanations of teaching strategies and tactics, as well as explanations and outlines of lesson activities and games, answers to questions and exercises, troubleshooting help, common mistakes students make with each topic, links to the common core for each concept and even suggested living books for remediation (which can also serve as a good built-in literature-based component for interested homeschools).

They also contain a fair amount of content for differentiation, providing teaching tips and ideas for activities for ELL, as well as for students who need remediation and advanced students who would benefit from enriched learning.

This can be very helpful for parents learning at home, and broadens the potential appeal of Go Math quite a bit, although homeschools may need to pick up the program’s Reteach/Enrich books to make full use of the differentiation ideas.

In terms of their overall layout, the teacher’s editions are pretty typical of a standard classroom teacher’s guide, with lesson guidance and suggestions surrounding a smaller copy of relevant student edition pages (with the answers and exercises completed).

As a result, they keep things pretty well-organized and are easy to follow and work with once parents are familiar with the flow, and there is a substantial amount of information on how to use the guides to teach at the front of each book in case parents are unsure, which is nice.

On the whole, Go Math’s teacher’s editions are also pretty well scripted.

Inside, parents teaching at home should find a good amount of detailed guidance on what to do in each lesson and how to do it, usually in plain English, which should help carry parents through lessons pretty easily.

Further, there are even “Math Talk” exercises, which are little scripted dialogues that are kind of fun and that can help parents and students discuss (and thereby reinforce) what they are learning through a sort of Socratic back and forth, which is kind of cool.

With all that said, parents should note that Go Math teacher’s editions don’t routinely contain an explicit, word-for-word dialogue and assume an ability to teach and move a lesson along, which can make it a little bit more challenging for new homeschooling families to use.

Homeschooling parents should also note that, as Go Math is largely intended to be used in schools, it does make reference to traditional teaching and a classroom setting, drawing examples therefrom and even making mention or including activities that use multiple students that will need to be adjusted for home use.

Another thing that homeschoolers should note is that the Go Math student editions and teacher’s guides often make reference to digital resources available on the company’s learning platform, such as a personal math trainer, animated models, virtual manipulatives and much more.

Sadly, these are only accessible to traditional schools with the appropriate licenses.

Interestingly, however, the homeschool editions do allow parents to scan included QR codes, which then open a link to a suite of helpful videos that briefly explain and demonstrate math concepts.

Called Math on the Spot, these videos are fairly entertaining and are hosted by a cast of muppets and actors.

Explaining concepts in simple, everyday English, the hosts go through a particular idea and work through it on-screen with an example or two, making them potentially very useful addition to lessons for parents with limited experience teaching math (or who are themselves a bit rusty on the subject).

An example of Math on the Spot can be seen below.

## Student edition

The student editions are where students spend most of their time in Go Math.

They contain the information and diagrams that students and parents go over as part of the instructional component, vocabulary work, as well as a wide variety of exercises, activities and games to use during a lesson.

The student editions are soft cover, consumable books that are printed in full color and highly illustrated, making them a good deal more interesting to look at and use than many other black and white math workbooks out there.

One thing to note, however, is that these books are presented differently depending on if a parent is using a classroom or homeschool version of Go Math.

In editions intended for traditional schools, the student books (like the teacher’s edition) are a single volume intended to be used in sequence over the course of a year.

Homeschool bundles, on the other hand, break the student edition up into a number of concept/chapter booklets, in a somewhat similar manner as programs like the Math Mammoth Blue series .

This arrangement can make teaching Go Math at home a lot more flexible in terms of scheduling, as parents can arrange and rearrange the topics they wish to introduce or work on as they would like.

However, it also means that there can be more material for parents to store, organize and keep track of over the course of a year, which can be a little annoying.

## Go Math’s Approach To Teaching Math

A spiral curriculum.

Go Math is a spiral math curriculum.

In other words, it breaks concepts down into smaller topics, introduces them a little at a time and periodically revisits them in greater depth as students progress in the series.

This is as opposed to a mastery math program, which would tend to have students focus on one particular topic over the course of a number of lessons and would then move on completely once proficiency is determined.

As we’ve discussed previous articles , this spiral approach can have its benefits.

For example, students may not feel as bogged down by a concept in a spiral program as they might in a mastery one, which can make learning less frustrating as students move on to new material fairly regularly and don’t spend weeks with a concept.

It can also make math a little less overwhelming for some students, giving them a break of sorts if they are really struggling with a concept, as they can move on and revisit the concept at a later date.

Spiral programs also tend to incorporate more opportunities for review and revision than mastery ones, with topics being reintroduced and practiced fairly regularly throughout a student’s career.

Go Math in particular also incorporates a good deal of spiral review exercises into its lessons.

In these exercises students are given an opportunity to review and practice previously learned (often related) concepts alongside new material, which can help in keeping things fresher and prevent students from forgetting important ideas.

## Conceptual Math Focus

Go Math is also a conceptual math program.

Like programs such as Singapore Math or RightStart , Go Math places a particular emphasis on helping students develop a stronger understanding of why the math works and why certain strategies can help solve problems, as opposed to simply learning how to solve problems quickly.

Consequently, rather than focusing on drilling math facts, the program spends a good deal more time in explaining math topics, providing visual demonstrations, analyzing word problems and getting students used to using multiple approaches and strategies to solve exercises.

Rather interestingly, and somewhat uniquely compared to even other conceptual programs, Go Math will, at times, even have students write out explanations of the logic behind certain math concepts in their own words.

Parents should be aware, however, that this does mean that students tend not to get quite as much drill with Go Math as they might with a more traditional math program.

Although students do get a fair amount of guided and independent practice during lessons, Go Math workbooks don’t have page after page of computational drill problems as might be found in programs such as CLE or Saxon .

While some students may appreciate this lack of (sometimes eye-rolling) drill, others may need the extra practice computational drill can provide in order to develop skill fluency, and may need to seek out extra practice materials as a result.

## Common Core Aligned

Although there are older, un-aligned editions of Go Math for sale out there, most newer editions of the program meet Common Core standards for math education.

Both the teacher’s editions and student books specifically note which topics align with which standards, and on the whole the series can be a good option for homeschoolers who prefer (or need) to align to the Common Core.

## Hands-on, Multisensory Learning

In order to teach its concepts, Go Math makes use of a fairly wide variety of hands-on learning activities.

During lessons, students have an opportunity to see and model ideas and concepts using math manipulatives, such as counting cubes or fractions strips (which are sold separately), which can help them better understand some of math’s more abstract concepts.

Interestingly, Go Math also includes a number of activities that students can engage in during lessons to reinforce and explore math concepts.

For example, the program often includes various math-related board games that students can play.

In order to move their pieces, students must complete a short math problem, which gets them practicing and thinking about their learning without having to do endless drill.

In addition to hands-on activities, Go Math also includes a good deal of visualization (through lesson pictorials) and even has parents and students engage in discussions (including back and forth Socratic dialogues), which add audio and visual learning components to the program.

As a result, we feel that Go Math can offer strong multisensory learning, which in turn can get students more excited about and engaged with their learning.

More than that, it can go a long way in helping students remember the information they are learning, as multisensory approaches have been shown to improve information retention in the long run.

On the downside, the inclusion of activities and discussion alongside instruction and practice can make math lessons take more time, which in turn can make them a little harder to fit into a busy homeschool schedule.

In addition, the inclusion of manipulatives and other hands-on activities in lessons does mean that parents will have to go out and buy (as well as organize and store) items for lessons, which in turn means that they will have to do a bit more prep work compared to a traditional lecture-and-workbook program.

## Cross Curricular and Real World Connections

Periodically during lessons, Go Math will make overt connections in a dedicated section between the math and other subjects students might be learning.

At times, these can include references to science subjects, social studies, English language arts and fine art.

While perhaps not an extremely in-depth study, these cross curricular connections can be interesting and can help students better appreciate math and get them thinking three dimensionally about their general studies.

In addition to making cross curricular connections, now and again Go Math will also demonstrate math applications in the real world, for example by showing how geometric design is used in engineering.

While these real world connections are fairly brief, they can be a great way to use things students are familiar with to show math as a practical and usable subject to study, rather than just something to suffer through and memorize.

## An Emphasis on Vocabulary

Finally, and perhaps a bit unusually for a math program, there is a strong focus on vocabulary development with Go Math.

Each chapter helps students learn proper math terms through dedicated instruction, practice and games.

Math Go even includes math journaling exercises, which allow students to freely discuss, write or even draw their understanding of math terminology in their own words and which can also be a good point of integration for homeschoolers following a Charlotte Mason approach.

Although not every student is a fan of vocabulary drill, its addition to lessons can ensure that students develop a stronger understanding of math terms and their proper use, which tends to be important in future math classes and in other STEM courses students will take, and is an often overlooked aspect of many homeschool math programs in our opinion.

## How It Works

Go Math is a teacher-led program.

Parents follow lesson guidelines set out in the teacher’s editions while students follow along and do their work in the student edition.

The program’s books are divided into a number of chapters, each centering on a particular topic or concept in math and containing a number (5-10) of lessons that relate to it.

For example, one chapter may be about fractions and its lessons may involve comparing and ordering them, multiplying them, simplifying them and so on.

Chapters and lessons in Go Math are fairly consistent and follow a pretty similar pattern.

Chapters begin with a “Show What You Know” exercise as part of a lesson introduction, which evaluates the current knowledge and skill level of a student on related or pre-requisite information before beginning the lessons.

In this way, skill and knowledge gaps are identified and parents can be more sure that their student is ready to learn a particular concept, which is helpful.

Students are then introduced to key vocabulary and do some exercises to help familiarize themselves with the proper terms that the unit will cover.

Somewhat similar to English language exercises, students may be asked to define words, fill in the blanks, complete charts, cut out and do memory work using flash cards and so on.

Following the chapter introduction and vocabulary work, parents and students begin approaching the new information.

Lessons in a chapter start off by introducing a concept, often with an overarching/guiding question or by explaining a concept by modeling it or working through an example problem.

At this point the teacher’s guide may point out or highlight important information or provide tips to help students understand things.

There may also be some hands-on learning, such as a math game, or a discussion to help reinforce the learning.

Once a concept is introduced and explained, parents and students work together on some guided practice questions, with the teacher’s guide offering “go deeper” questions to challenge students to further explore concepts.

Following this, and if everything is progressing smoothly, students can engage in independent practice in their workbook, such as by doing computational exercises, problem solving, written work to test their understanding and so on.

At the end of each lesson there tends to be a short assessment (called a Lesson Check ) to make sure students really get what they’ve learned, as well as a spiral review, which brings in some previously learned concepts and gets students to work on them a bit to freshen up their memory.

After a few lessons (about half-way through a chapter) there is a mid-chapter checkpoint, which is a kind of test lasting a couple of pages that assesses a student’s learning to that point using some relatively traditional short answer and multiple choice questions.

At the end of each chapter, meanwhile, students are usually given a review lesson, where they can practice everything they’ve learned in that chapter, before being tested with a fairly lengthy and comprehensive end-of-chapter cumulative assessment (about 4-6 pages of work).

## Our Thoughts On Go Math Lessons

Overall, we feel that Go Math lessons are pretty straightforward and easy to teach, even for parents with limited homeschool teaching experience.

The lessons are very well-organized and sequentially laid out, making them very easy to follow and teach with, especially as the information is written in a pretty understandable, common sense manner.

In addition, the teacher’s guides offer tons of helpful resources and ideas for conveying the information to students, with a good deal of troubleshooting and differentiation ideas that parents can make use of if needed.

For a program designed for (and frequently used by) traditional schools, Go Math includes an impressive amount of activities, games and multisensory exercises in its lessons.

At any given time, students might be asked to use manipulatives, discuss ideas, write things down, play board games and much, much more, all of which can make learning a lot more fun and engaging than most traditional, and even many homeschool, math programs.

Lessons in Go Math also include a lot of built-in review and practice, which is something that we appreciated.

Each lesson contains a fair amount of exercises, both guided and independent, as well dedicated spiral review, discussions between parents and students, a lesson check and, of course, an assessment of prior knowledge and a cumulative assessment at the start and end of the chapter, respectively.

All this can really help reinforce and solidify concepts for students, and the frequent repetition of both current and previous learning can be highly effective for many students, particularly those with a tendency to develop skill gaps over time.

Finally, we liked the strong conceptual focus of Go Math, particularly its frequent emphasis on having students practice alternative strategies for solving problems and checking their work.

Often seen in highly-respected conceptual programs such as Art of Problem Solving , this approach can get kids thinking more critically and analytically about the problems they encounter, helping them develop the skills and fluency they might need to tackle unusual or novel problems in the future.

That said, it is important to note that we don’t believe Go Math to be the most rigorous or advanced math program out there.

Aimed at least partially at the public school system, the main program is designed to really make math more understandable and approachable.

While the program does introduce concepts pretty well and allows students to explore different strategies and hone their analytic skills, there aren’t quite as many tricky or complex, multi-step word problems as in some more challenging programs aimed at advanced math students, such as Beast Academy .

As a result, students and parents who are looking for greater challenges may need to pick up the program’s enrichment books or other supplements.

Another thing parents might want to consider is the length of lessons in Go Math.

Should parents go through the lessons as intended, there can be a considerable time spent explaining and discussing topics, doing hands-on activities, playing games, writing things down and, of course, reviewing concepts.

Lessons, therefore, aren’t exactly all that short and can take up 4-6 pages, or over an hour depending on a student’s willingness (or enthusiasm) to discuss things and/or go off track.

As a result, lessons may not be quite as easy to fit into a busy homeschool schedule as some other programs.

## Pros and Cons of Go Math

Makes math learning more fun and approachable .

With a plethora of activities and discussions to try, and an easy to understand method of teaching, Go Math can make learning math a little more interesting and approachable for students.

## Materials are colorful and highly visual

Go Math’s teacher and student editions are full color and use a wide variety of illustrations and visuals to help explain concepts, making them a lot more interesting to look at and use than some other programs out there.

## Lessons are easy to use

By and large, Go Math’s teacher’s editions are very well organized and laid out and teaching lessons tends to be simply a matter of following each step in sequence.

The program also offers a large number of tips for teaching, advice for troubleshooting lessons and ideas for differentiating learning.

## Lessons are also multisensory and fairly activity-rich

Go Math isn’t simply a lecture-based math program. Its lessons are very multisensory, containing discussions, manipulatives, visual diagrams, hands-on activities and even games, which keeps learning engaging and able to help students with different learning styles better connect to the program,

## The program offers strong, conceptual math learning

Go Math is a strongly conceptual math program that teaches for understanding, rather than simple computational skill.

It carefully explains why math works the way it does, encourages students to dive deeper into math ideas and helps them critically analyze and work on math problems using different strategies and approaches.

All of this can help students develop a more solid background in math and become more confident when dealing with unfamiliar or unusual math exercises.

## There is a lot of opportunity for review and repetition

Go Math offers students a lot of opportunity to revisit and practice math concepts, both new and previously learned, during lessons with several dedicated review sections before, during and after each lesson, as well as before each comprehensive chapter test.

## Can take some effort and time on the part of parents

Go Math is a fairly parent intensive math program and its lessons can involve parents leading discussions, guiding practice, assessing student knowledge, setting up games, participating in activities and more.

## Written for the classroom

Go Math’s books are largely designed for classroom use, making frequent mention of the traditional school setting, teachers, classmates and more, which can be a bit of a turnoff for dedicated homeschooling families.

## Who Is Go Math Ideal For?

Homeschools looking for a multisensory, activity-rich math curriculum.

Go Math includes a wide variety of multisensory methods of teaching to help students learn math, including visual diagrams, hands-on activities, journaling, active discussions, videos and even games.

As a result, it can be a very engaging and even fun curriculum for students to use and can be more effective for students with different learning preferences and styles.

## Homeschools looking for an approachable, conceptual math program

Like math curricula such as Singapore Math or Math U See, Go Math is a conceptual math program that tries to help students better understand why math works the way it does, how math works and why certain approaches are effective at solving problems.

It can, therefore, help them develop a deeper and more analytical understanding of math.

At the same time, the program uses common sense explanations, plenty of visuals, hands-on activities and even games to help make learning a little easier and less intimidating for students.

## Homeschools looking for a common-core aligned program

Go Math is a Common Core aligned math curriculum that is used by schools across the US and can therefore be an excellent option for those interested in such an approach to teaching.

## Students that need a good amount of repetition and review to master skills

With chapter pre-assessments, dedicated lesson reviews, spiral reviews, parent-student discussions and more, Go Math offers homeschooling students a lot of opportunity to practice what they’re learning and review previously learned concepts.

This can be of great help to students who need a good deal of consistent practice to prevent skill and knowledge gaps from forming.

## Those interested in a “school at home” approach

Some families prefer to try and replicate the experience of a public school system as much as possible in their homeschool.

As a curriculum written for and used by schools across the US, Go Math can fit this approach to at home teaching pretty well.

## Who Is It Not Ideal For?

Those looking for a program specifically designed for homeschools.

Go Math’s teacher’s guides are more or less written for a classroom setting and tend to make references to traditional schooling from time to time.

Although sold to and fairly frequently used by homeschools, it is not specifically and exclusively designed for homeschooling families, which can bother some parents.

## Students who pick things up quickly and get frustrated with lots of review

Go Math tends to review and revisit material a little more frequently than some other programs, with pre-lesson assessments, lesson exercises, lesson checks, spiral reviews, various games and activities, math talk discussions and more.

Those who pick up and master math concepts quickly may find it a little much.

## Those looking for a more advanced homeschool math program

Go Math is a math program that tends to focus on making conceptual math more approachable and understandable for students and generally tracks along grade level in terms of rigor and pace.

As such, it may not be the most ideal program for those with highly advanced or talented math students.

Note: Prices correct as of writing. All prices in USD.

There are a couple ways in which homeschooling families can pick up Go Math for home use.

The program is offered as a complete and fairly expansive homeschool package that, as we’ve mentioned, breaks the student edition up into a number of booklets based around individual concepts for that grade.

These packages also come with the teacher’s edition, a lesson planning guide (to help parents schedule and pace lessons), an assessment guide with copies of tests and rubrics for correcting them, and a reusable and plasticized chart with math facts, questions and rules that students should remember.

Alternatively, parents can pick up the student and teacher’s editions (with the student edition being sold as a single book), as well the assessment guides (should they feel like doing so) as individual items, which can be an option for those on tighter budgets.

Although the exact price for a curriculum varies by grade, complete homeschool packages tend to cost somewhere between $250-300.

Individual student editions tend to cost around $45, teacher’s editions around $62.40, and the assessment guides around $15.

As always, we encourage parents to check the latest prices for the program, as well as for any discounts or sales that might be on offer.

## Is It Worth The Price?

Although perhaps not the cheapest homeschooling math program around, we feel that Go Math can be an excellent math program for the right homeschooling families.

Go Math offers parents and students a comprehensive and standards-aligned conceptual math program that helps students understand the math they are learning a little more deeply and can get them thinking far more strategically and critically about problem solving, something that will stand them in good stead in their high school math and STEM courses and beyond.

Perhaps more than that, the curricula explain concepts quite clearly and understandably, frequently connecting the learning to subjects and real-life objects/situations that students may more readily understand.

It also provides students with ample opportunity for review and revision, often making these interesting through the use of games and hands-on exercises.

Finally, Go Math is also a very multisensory math program.

Lessons can involve hands-on activities, visual diagrams, videos, discussions and even games, all of which allow the program to suit a wide array of learners and learning styles and be more engaging in the process.

## Google Docs will now solve simple math problems faster than you can

The new Google Workspace feature is rolling out now.

## What you need to know

- The Smart Compose feature in Google Docs is now able to solve simple math problems as you type them.
- The tool is rolling out now for Google Workspace business and education users on the rapid release schedule. Users with scheduled releases will see the feature starting Dec. 18.
- Aside from Google Docs, the feature also works in Slides, Sheets, and Drawings.

Google is using its machine learning tech to make Smart Compose in Google Workspace more powerful, it announced today. Now, when you enter a simple math equation in a Google Doc, Slide, Sheet, or Drawing, the Smart Compose assistant will automatically suggest the answer. It's rolling out now for paid Google Workspace business and education users, but not everyone will see the feature immediately.

Smart Compose was originally released to help users write in Google Workspace apps, and it's based on Google's machine learning. That's not to be confused with "Help me write," which is Google's writing assistant with artificial intelligence . With both tools, Google warns that it cannot guarantee accuracy.

However, the Smart Compose feature should be a lot more helpful with math than words. It's essentially looking for an equal ( = ) symbol in text with a preceding math equation. After Smart Compose detects the equation, it will use ML to solve the equation like a calculator would. But this happens almost immediately, as soon as you press the equals key.

Like other Smart Compose applications, the solutions will be presented as a suggestion. That means it will appear greyed-out, and users need to press the tab key to insert the solution. To ignore it, simply press the space bar instead.

Google says that the Smart Compose feature will work with "simple" math problems, and we don't know exactly what that means. However, Google's demo of Smart Compose solved an equation with multiple steps using the correct order of operations.

The feature will be turned on by default for paid Google Workspace business and education customers. It's rolling out today for users whose organizations are on rapid release schedules, but it can take 15 days for the tool to reach all users. Smart Compose won't start rolling out for users with scheduled releases until December 18 and won't finish until 15 days after that.

Our Google Workspace account didn't have access to the new Smart Compose tools just yet. You can check to make sure Smart Compose is turned on by opening a document, clicking the tools tab, selecting preferences , and then looking for the checkbox that says Show Smart Compose suggestions . To stop seeing the suggestions, simply click the checkbox.

Google says the new Smart Compose functionality "will increase productivity and accuracy when solving math equations across Workspace." This is probably true, but we suspect teachers and educators might not be thrilled with their students using this feature. Surprisingly, Google says there is no admin control over Smart Compose.

This feature won't be available in personal Google Workspace accounts, at least for now.

- Try a few numbers to get a general idea of what the solution could be.
- Write an equation.
- Solve the equation by inverse operations or by plugging in values.
- Check your solution--does it satisfy the equation? Does it make sense in the context of the problem? (e.g. A length should not be negative.)
- What is known? Matt has 12(5) = 60 cents in nickels. Matt has 2(95) = 190 cents total. What needs to be found? The number of dimes that Matt has.

5 dimes? 10(5) + 60 = 110. Too low. 10 dimes? 10(10) + 60 = 160. Still too low. 20 dimes? 10(20) + 60 = 260. Too high. So we know the answer is between 10 and 20.

- Write an equation: 10 d + 60 = 190 where d is the number of dimes Matt has.

10 d + 60 - 60 = 190 - 60 10 d = 130 = d = 13

- Check: 10(13) + 60 = 190? Yes. Does 13 dimes make sense in the context of the problem? Yes.

5 shots? = . Not enough misses. 10 shots? = . Too many misses. So we know the answer is between 5 and 10.

= 51( ) = 51( ) 51 + x = 60 51 + x - 51 = 60 - 51 x = 9

- What is known? The area of the square is 2 times its perimeter. The formula for area is A = x 2 and the formula for perimeter is p = 4 x . What needs to be found? The length of a side.

x = 5 ? A = 5 2 = 25 , p = 4(5) = 20 . Area too small. x = 10 ? A = 10 2 = 100 , p = 4(10) = 40 . Area too large. So we know the answer is between 5 and 10.

- Write an equation: x 2 = 2(4 x ) . x 2 = 8 x
- Check: 8 2 = 8(8) ? Yes. Does 8 make sense in the context of the problem? Yes.

## Solve Direct Translation Applications

Systems of linear equations are very useful for solving applications. Some people find setting up word problems with two variables easier than setting them up with just one variable. To solve an application, we’ll first translate the words into a system of linear equations. Then we will decide the most convenient method to use, and then solve the system.

## Solve applications with systems of equations.

- Step 1. Read the problem. Make sure all the words and ideas are understood.
- Step 2. Identify what we are looking for.
- Step 3. Name what we are looking for. Choose variables to represent those quantities.
- Step 4. Translate into a system of equations.
- Step 5. Solve the system of equations using good algebra techniques.
- Step 6. Check the answer in the problem and make sure it makes sense.
- Step 7. Answer the question with a complete sentence.

We solved number problems with one variable earlier. Let’s see how differently it works using two variables.

## Example 4.14

## Try It 4.29

Geraldine has been offered positions by two insurance companies. The first company pays a salary of $12,000 plus a commission of $100 for each policy sold.

As you solve each application, remember to analyze which method of solving the system of equations would be most convenient.

## Example 4.16

Translate to a system of equations and then solve:

How many calories were burned for each minute of jumping jacks?

## Try It 4.32

During her next visit to the gym she spent 50 minutes on the rowing machine and 10 minutes lifting weights and burned 600 calories. How many calories did she burn for each minutes on the rowing machine? How many calories did she burn for each minute of weight lifting?

Solve Geometry Applications

We will now solve geometry applications using systems of linear equations. We will need to add complementary angles and supplementary angles to our list some properties of angles.

The measures of two complementary angles add to 90 degrees. The measures of two supplementary angles add to 180 degrees.

## Complementary and Supplementary Angles

Two angles are complementary if the sum of the measures of their angles is 90 degrees.

Two angles are supplementary if the sum of the measures of their angles is 180 degrees.

If two angles are complementary, we say that one angle is the complement of the other.

If two angles are supplementary, we say that one angle is the supplement of the other.

## Example 4.17

Translate to a system of equations and then solve.

The difference of two complementary angles is 26 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.

## Try It 4.33

The difference of two complementary angles is 20 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.

## Try It 4.34

The difference of two complementary angles is 80 degrees. Find the measures of the angles.

In the next example, we remember that the measures of supplementary angles add to 180.

## Example 4.18

Two angles are supplementary. The measure of the larger angle is twelve degrees less than five times the measure of the smaller angle. Find the measures of both angles.

## Try It 4.35

Two angles are supplementary. The measure of the larger angle is 12 degrees more than three times the smaller angle. Find the measures of the angles.

## Try It 4.36

Two angles are supplementary. The measure of the larger angle is 18 less than twice the measure of the smaller angle. Find the measures of the angles.

Recall that the angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees. A right triangle has one angle that is 90 degrees. What does that tell us about the other two angles? In the next example we will be finding the measures of the other two angles.

## Example 4.19

The measure of one of the small angles of a right triangle is ten more than three times the measure of the other small angle. Find the measures of both angles.

We will draw and label a figure.

## Try It 4.37

The measure of one of the small angles of a right triangle is 2 more than 3 times the measure of the other small angle. Find the measure of both angles.

## Try It 4.38

The measure of one of the small angles of a right triangle is 18 less than twice the measure of the other small angle. Find the measure of both angles.

Often it is helpful when solving geometry applications to draw a picture to visualize the situation.

## Example 4.20

Randall has 125 feet of fencing to enclose the part of his backyard adjacent to his house. He will only need to fence around three sides, because the fourth side will be the wall of the house. He wants the length of the fenced yard (parallel to the house wall) to be 5 feet more than four times as long as the width. Find the length and the width.

## Try It 4.39

Mario wants to put a fence around the pool in his backyard. Since one side is adjacent to the house, he will only need to fence three sides. There are two long sides and the one shorter side is parallel to the house. He needs 155 feet of fencing to enclose the pool. The length of the long side is 10 feet less than twice the width. Find the length and width of the pool area to be enclosed.

## Try It 4.40

Alexis wants to build a rectangular dog run in her yard adjacent to her neighbor’s fence. She will use 136 feet of fencing to completely enclose the rectangular dog run. The length of the dog run along the neighbor’s fence will be 16 feet less than twice the width. Find the length and width of the dog run.

We used a table to organize the information in uniform motion problems when we introduced them earlier. We’ll continue using the table here. The basic equation was D = r t D = r t where D is the distance traveled, r is the rate, and t is the time.

Our first example of a uniform motion application will be for a situation similar to some we have already seen, but now we can use two variables and two equations.

## Example 4.21

Joni left St. Louis on the interstate, driving west towards Denver at a speed of 65 miles per hour. Half an hour later, Kelly left St. Louis on the same route as Joni, driving 78 miles per hour. How long will it take Kelly to catch up to Joni?

A diagram is useful in helping us visualize the situation.

Identify and name what we are looking for. A chart will help us organize the data. We know the rates of both Joni and Kelly, and so we enter them in the chart. We are looking for the length of time Kelly, k , and Joni, j , will each drive.

Since D = r · t D = r · t we can fill in the Distance column.

Translate into a system of equations.

To make the system of equations, we must recognize that Kelly and Joni will drive the same distance. So,

Also, since Kelly left later, her time will be 1 2 1 2 hour less than Joni’s time. So,

## Try It 4.41

Mitchell left Detroit on the interstate driving south towards Orlando at a speed of 60 miles per hour. Clark left Detroit 1 hour later traveling at a speed of 75 miles per hour, following the same route as Mitchell. How long will it take Clark to catch Mitchell?

## Try It 4.42

Charlie left his mother’s house traveling at an average speed of 36 miles per hour. His sister Sally left 15 minutes ( 1 4 hour ) ( 1 4 hour ) later traveling the same route at an average speed of 42 miles per hour. How long before Sally catches up to Charlie?

Many real-world applications of uniform motion arise because of the effects of currents—of water or air—on the actual speed of a vehicle. Cross-country airplane flights in the United States generally take longer going west than going east because of the prevailing wind currents.

Let’s take a look at a boat travelling on a river. Depending on which way the boat is going, the current of the water is either slowing it down or speeding it up.

The images below show how a river current affects the speed at which a boat is actually travelling. We’ll call the speed of the boat in still water b and the speed of the river current c .

The boat is going downstream, in the same direction as the river current. The current helps push the boat, so the boat’s actual speed is faster than its speed in still water. The actual speed at which the boat is moving is b + c . b + c .

Now, the boat is going upstream, opposite to the river current. The current is going against the boat, so the boat’s actual speed is slower than its speed in still water. The actual speed of the boat is b − c . b − c .

We’ll put some numbers to this situation in the next example.

## Example 4.22

A river cruise ship sailed 60 miles downstream for 4 hours and then took 5 hours sailing upstream to return to the dock. Find the speed of the ship in still water and the speed of the river current.

## Try It 4.43

A Mississippi river boat cruise sailed 120 miles upstream for 12 hours and then took 10 hours to return to the dock. Find the speed of the river boat in still water and the speed of the river current.

## Try It 4.44

Jason paddled his canoe 24 miles upstream for 4 hours. It took him 3 hours to paddle back. Find the speed of the canoe in still water and the speed of the river current.

Wind currents affect airplane speeds in the same way as water currents affect boat speeds. We’ll see this in the next example. A wind current in the same direction as the plane is flying is called a tailwind . A wind current blowing against the direction of the plane is called a headwind .

## Example 4.23

A private jet can fly 1,095 miles in three hours with a tailwind but only 987 miles in three hours into a headwind. Find the speed of the jet in still air and the speed of the wind.

## Try It 4.45

A small jet can fly 1,325 miles in 5 hours with a tailwind but only 1,035 miles in 5 hours into a headwind. Find the speed of the jet in still air and the speed of the wind.

## Try It 4.46

A commercial jet can fly 1,728 miles in 4 hours with a tailwind but only 1,536 miles in 4 hours into a headwind. Find the speed of the jet in still air and the speed of the wind.

## Math Review of Solving Application Problems

- July 24, 2014
- No Comments

Solving application problems is a process that includes understanding the problem, translating it into an equation, solving the equation, checking the answer, and answering the question. This process can be used to solve many different types of problems.

## Understanding and Setting up The Application Problem

The first part of the process involves understanding what is being asked. This includes noticing any key words that refer to operations and any quantities that are in relationship to one another. It is important to have an idea of what sort of quantity will represent a solution. Suppose a problem asks how many points the first-place winner had. That would require just one answer. If the problem described that the first-place winner had 10 points more than the second-place winner, and 17 points more than the third-place winner, all three point values would be necessary to completely answer the question.

Figure 1: Setting up the application problem involves finding quantities in relationship to one another.

## Translating the Problem into an Equation

The second part of the problem involves putting the problem in symbol form. This includes choosing a letter to represent a variable, and writing down exactly what the variable stands for. Suppose that the point values of the three winners totaled 114. Let the point value of the first-place winner be x, the second-place winner x – 10, and the third-place winner x – 17. Then, x + x – 10 + x – 17 = 114.

Figure 2: Translating the problem into an equation involves putting the problem into symbol form.

## Solving and Checking the Equation

If x + x – 10 + x – 17 = 114, then 3x = 114 + 27, or 3x = 141. So, x = 47, x – 10 = 37, and x -17 = 30. To check, 47 + 37 + 30 = 114. The answer makes sense, and fits the parameters of the problem. In this case, the original equation was x + x -10 + x – 17 = 114.

## Answer the Question Asked

If the work is done to understand the problem before it is set up and solved, it is easier to answer the appropriate question. In this case, all three point values were necessary to completely answer the question. Suppose that more information were added to the problem. During the same contest last year, the point values of the first-place, second-place and third-place winners totaled 100, but the second place winner had 14 points less than the first-place winner, and the third-place winner had 18 points less than the first place winner. Which year did the third-place winner earn more points, and what was the difference? Last year, the equation was x + x – 14 + x – 18 = 100, so 3x = 132. The first-place winner earned 44 points, the second-place winner earned 44-14 or 30 points, and the third-place winner earned 28 points. However, the question asked has 2 parts. Last year, the third-place winner earned 28 points, and this year, the third-place winner earned 30 points. This year, the third-place winner earned more points, and the difference was a gain of 2 points.

Figure 3: Answering the question asked brings all the parts of the problem into balance.

## 10 Helpful Worksheet Ideas for Primary School Math Lessons

Posted: October 30, 2023 | Last updated: December 7, 2023

Mathematics is a fundamental subject that shapes the way children think and analyze the world. At the primary school level, laying a strong foundation is crucial. While hands-on activities, digital tools, and interactive discussions play significant roles in learning, worksheets remain an essential tool for reinforcing concepts, practicing skills, and assessing understanding. Here’s a look at some helpful worksheets for primary school math lessons.

## Comparison Chart Worksheets

Comparison charts provide a visual means for primary school students to grasp relationships between numbers or concepts. They are easy to make at www.storyboardthat.com/create/comparison-chart-template , and here is how they can be used:

- Quantity Comparison: Charts might display two sets, like apples vs. bananas, prompting students to determine which set is larger.
- Attribute Comparison: These compare attributes, such as different shapes detailing their number of sides and characteristics.
- Number Line Comparisons: These help students understand number magnitude by placing numbers on a line to visualize their relative sizes.
- Venn Diagrams: Introduced in later primary grades, these diagrams help students compare and contrast two sets of items or concepts.
- Weather Charts: By comparing weather on different days, students can learn about temperature fluctuations and patterns.

## Number Recognition and Counting Worksheets

For young learners, recognizing numbers and counting is the first step into the world of mathematics. Worksheets can offer:

- Number Tracing: Allows students to familiarize themselves with how each number is formed.
- Count and Circle: Images are presented, and students have to count and circle the correct number.
- Missing Numbers: Sequences with missing numbers that students must fill in to practice counting forward and backward.

## Basic Arithmetic Worksheets

Once students are familiar with numbers, they can start simple arithmetic.

- Addition and Subtraction within 10 or 20: Using visual aids like number lines, counters, or pictures can be beneficial.
- Word Problems: Simple real-life scenarios can help students relate math to their daily lives.
