Solve and check one- or two-step word problems requiring the four operations within 100.

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Match the vocabulary in a word problem to an action.
• Use manipulatives to model the context of the word problem. Count to find the answer.
Representation:
• Create a pictorial representation of the word problem.
• Understand context clues to interpret the concepts, symbols, and vocabulary for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

 Number: MAFS.4.OA.1.AP.3a Category: Access Points Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14 Cluster: Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems. (Major Cluster) :  Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
