Module 2: Multi-Step Word Problems And Equations

Students will solve multi-step word problems from given tape diagrams and equations.

5 Hours


Module 2 uses length, mass and capacity in the metric system to convert between units using place value knowledge.  Students recognize patterns of converting units on the place value chart, just as 1000 grams is equal 1 kilogram, 1000 ones is equal to 1 thousand.  Conversions are recorded in two-column tables and number lines, and are applied in single- and multi-step word problems solved by the addition and subtraction algorithm or a special strategy.  Mixed unit practice prepares students for multi-digit operations and manipulating fractional units in future modules.

The Following Topics Are Included within this Module:

  • Topic A:  Metric Unit Conversions
  • Topic B:  Metric Unit Conversations

Lessons are organized under each of the topic areas.
