Upper Grades Classic: Word Problems Kit 1

The ABCs to the language of math.


This supplementary kit clears the stumbling blocks often encountered as students work through word problems. It eliminates guesswork, and makes a difficult topic easy and digestible. To do this, we use a sequential approach that focuses on learning and identifying the correct vocabulary to accurately solve the problems. We begin with word problems that only address addition. The anxiety over selecting the correct operation is eliminated, allowing students to focus on the key elements of the word problems. Next, we introduce word problems that use only subtraction, and eventually the two computation processes are combined. Students can then draw on their knowledge of key words, phrases, and scenarios to solve mixed operations.
