Interactive Math Lesson – Word Problems with Mixed Addition, Subtraction, Basic Multiplication and Division

Help your students take their math skills to the next level with this exciting fourth grade-level math lesson featuring word problems! In this interactive math lesson, students will read the word problem and decide which operation to use: addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. When students complete this lesson, they will have gained confidence and proficiency in basic math skills involving word problems.

Your students will be presented with a variety of word problem types in this online math game. Here is a sample question your students may be asked: "Dean is reading a mystery chapter book that has 106 pages. He has already read 54 pages. How many more pages does he have to read?" Here is another example of a word problem your students may have to solve: "Aisha won 324 tickets at the arcade. She used 257 tickets at the prize counter. How many tickets does she have left?" Your students will become familiar with choosing the operation required to solve each of the problems in this lesson.

Several features in the I Know It math lessons help students make the most of their math practice time. If students need a little extra help solving a word problem, they can click on the "Hint" button. They will be shown a relevant pictorial or written clue that will help them get started on the problem. Here's an example: "Liv practiced her violin for 315 minutes last week and 275 minutes this week. How many minutes did she practice for altogether?" Students will click the hint button, and a window will pop up, reading: "Add to find how many minutes she practiced for altogether." If students answer the question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will appear, showing them with step-by-step instructions how to solve the question correctly.

Other lesson features your students will find useful include the following: a progress-tracker to show them how many questions they have answered so far in the math lesson; a score-tracker to let them know how many math questions they have answered correctly so far; and a read-aloud button that they can click to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice.
