Welcome to our guide on crafting effective math IEP goals, focusing on learning standard 4.OA.A.3. This standard emphasizes solving multistep word problems using the four operations, interpreting remainders, and representing these problems with equations. Our target IEP goal is designed to enhance students' ability to solve guess-and-check word problems, improving from 0/10 to 8/10 correct work samples over ten trials. By setting SMART goalsâ€”Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-Oriented, and Time-Boundâ€”we ensure students make measurable progress in operations and algebraic thinking skills. Explore our detailed objectives and strategies to support your students in mastering multi-step problem-solving.

Learning Standard

### 4.OA.A.3

Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

Target IEP Goal

By (date), when given exercises with multi-step word problems, the student will solve guess-and-check word problems, improving operations and algebraic thinking skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.

Teach Tastic IEP goals written to be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-Oriented, and Time-Bound.
