The presentation goes through what RUCSAC means and stands for and goes through examples on breaking words problems down.

#### 'RUCSAC' breakdown to help solve word problems

I created this presentation to help my class understand how to answer word problems using the well known mnemonic 'RUCSAC&' - read, underline, calculation, solve, answer, check. I used this for my Year 4&';s but I have also used it in Year 5. It can be used for any year group and any ability level - just change the word problems at the end to make them more appropriate.\n\nAlso another tip!!: I already had the word problems wrote out on the flipchart so that I could model how to use RUCSAC.
