During our TEA Time, we have been going over how to solve word problems. We came across Mrs. Yollis’ class blog that showed us a different kind of word problem. After reading her post, we took the challenge to write our own Mississippi word problems. We shared our problems on her blog and hope that her students solved them. Do you want to take the challenge and solve our word problems?
