Florida BEST Standard MA.3.AR.1.2 Misconceptions

One common misconception for this standard is a lack of comprehension and students not solving both steps in a two-step word problem. Provide students with a graphic organizer that helps them read the problem multiple times to identify what they know, are looking for and how to find it.

Another common misconception is that students can’t draw effective models for the problems. Help students by removing the quantities from the problem and encouraging them to estimate the answer first.
