When teaching students about the different types of word problems, I would teach students each one in isolation first, before having students solve mixed-type of problems. This way they become familiar with what these problems may sound like. All the example problems in this unit are addition and subtraction ** within 20** as this is an introduction to the problem types.

*In this unit you will find the following:*
