# Check Multistep Word Problems (Grade 4)

Videos and lessons to help Grade 4 students learn to 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.

Common Core: 4.OA.3

### Suggested Learning Targets
