Another picture to strengthen your child’s math reasoning skills and creativity !

Invite your child to invent a word problem that matches the drawing.

If your child is not sure how to start, you may invite him/her to write a problem involving addition at first. Then, let him/her try with subtraction, multiplication and division !

Here are a few examples:

- On the ring, there were 1 illusionist, 3 jugglers and 4 circus musicians. How many people were on the ring ? (1 + 3 + 4 = 8)
- There were 15 circus musicians leaving the ring. 11 were already behind the curtain. Some were still on the ring. How many musicians were still on the ring ? (15 – 11 = 4)
- There were 3 jugglers. Each juggler had 4 balls. How many balls did the jugglers have all together? ( 3 x 4 = 12)
- There were 180 spectators. Two third of them had brown hair. How many spectators had brown hair? (180 x 2/3 = 120)
- 3 jugglers want to share 12 balls so that each of them gets the same number of balls. How many balls would each juggler get? (12 ÷ 3 = 4)

Until next time !
