Problem Solving is often a dreaded task. Why?
- Solving “word problems” is often overwhelming for students. Many times they choose two numbers and add.
- For the struggling reader, solving problems is a challenge. Energy is spent on conquering the text, not the math.
- Many students simply don’t answer what the question is asking.
We have solved those problems with Target the Question™, where the question is the focus! There is ONE passage to read each week. Read and understand that scenario on Monday and each day that week answer a different question about that same passage! After using this supplementary math program for 10-15 minutes each day, students will be able to find needed information, eliminate extraneous information and effectively use problem-solving strategies.
Target the Question™ is correlated to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) as well as the Common Core, so it’s compatible with any curriculum. It is also a rigorous program, focusing on critical thinking, application of problem-solving strategies, and selective use of information from passages and questions, so students will be prepared for any major exam, including the STAAR® test. Best of all, all of these skills are covered in just minutes each day!
We proudly offer Target the Question™ in bulletin board, virtual board, and Plus 1:1 formats! Plus and virtual board versions available in English and Spanish. All versions have been updated to the newest TEKS, so you can rest assured that your students will be prepared for the STAAR® with this rigorous supplement.
We also offer TEKSas Target Practice™ for a different type of math review for those classrooms in Texas, and Target Reading™ for reading and language arts development!

Everyday practice of math problem solving. I appreciate how the problems increases in difficulty with each week. I feel that this program is beneficial in helping students learn and find key words within a multi-layered word problem. The color system allows students to use highlighters to identify important information and keeps students engaged. It also helps students learn how to differentiate between needed and unneeded information within a word problem.
