When it comes to solving two-step word problems, scaffolded IEP goals can make a big difference for students. By breaking down the task into smaller, more manageable steps, students can better understand the concepts and make progress towards meeting their goals. For example, a student might first focus on solving one-step problems before moving on to two-step problems. Or, a student might work on identifying the key information in a word problem and then solve the problem using the four operations. Scaffolded IEP goals can be customized to meet the needs of each individual student, and they can help make learning more accessible and effective. When it comes to promoting student learning, scaffolded IEP goals are an essential tool for educators. Learning Standard

3.OA.D.8

Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. 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.3 Target IEP Goal

By (date), when given problems with unknown quantity, the student will solve two-step word problems using the four operations and represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity, 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.  IEP Goal Objectives
