Big Ideas: Information to solve word problems can be found in picture graphs. Multiplication, addition, division, and subtraction can be used to solve problems in different situations. We can solve one-step and two-step word problems using the graphs. Students will use the picture graph data to solve one and two-step word problems. Problems that require students to compare groups of data by subtracting or finding a missing addend will be a focus. Recognizing that the situation in the problem determines the operation to use is a vital skill in this task. In addition, students will begin to realize that more than one strategy may be used to solve a problem. Vocabulary: picture graph, key
