Interactive Math Activity - Choose the Operation with Word Problems

Equip your students with the confidence and ability to choose the operation with a variety of word problems in this interactive math lesson from iKnowIt.com. This activity gives your fourth-grade learners hands-on experience choosing from the four operations, addition and subtraction, and multi-digit multiplication and division, as they solve word problems. Upon completion of this online math activity, your students will have gained proficiency in word problems featuring the four operations.

Children will be challenged to solve a variety of word problems in this math game. Here are a few examples: "In 2010, the population of Bozeman, Montana, was 37,280 people. In 2015, the population increased to 43,405 people. How many more people were there in 2015 than in 2010?" "Knollwood Elementary School is raising money to purchase new playground equipment. There are 6 fourth grade classes. Each fourth-grade class raised $342. How much money did the fourth-grade classes raise altogether?" "The Delta Amphitheater can hold 518 people. There were 3 concerts held there last month that sold out. How many tickets were sold for the three performances combined?" If students need a little extra help solving a word problem, they can click on the "Hint" button on their practice screen. They will be shown a written or pictorial clue that will point them in the right direction without giving away the answer. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will appear to show them how to obtain the correct solution, step by step, so they can learn from mistakes.

This fourth-grade word problem activity is equipped with several built-in tools that help students make the most of their math practice session. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen lets students see how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math lesson. A score-tracker beneath that shows students how many points they have earned for answering questions correctly. Opposite, a speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click the button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a great option for ESL/ELL students and children who excel with auditory learning. Every feature of our I Know It math lessons is designed to help your students achieve success in their math practice.
