## Math Word Problems

Welcome to the math word problems worksheets page at Math-Drills.com! On this page, you will find Math word and story problems worksheets with single- and multi-step solutions on a variety of math topics including addition, multiplication, subtraction, division and other math topics. It is usually a good idea to ensure students already have a strategy or two in place to complete the math operations involved in a particular question. For example, students may need a way to figure out what 7 × 8 is or have previously memorized the answer before you give them a word problem that involves finding the answer to 7 × 8.

There are a number of strategies used in solving math word problems; if you don't have a favorite, try the Math-Drills.com problem-solving strategy:

- Question : Understand what the question is asking. What operation or operations do you need to use to solve this question? Ask for help to understand the question if you can't do it on your own.
- Estimate : Use an estimation strategy, so you can check your answer for reasonableness in the evaluate step. Try underestimating and overestimating, so you know what range the answer is supposed to be in. Be flexible in rounding numbers if it will make your estimate easier.
- Strategize : Choose a strategy to solve the problem. Will you use mental math, manipulatives, or pencil and paper? Use a strategy that works for you. Save the calculator until the evaluate stage.
- Calculate : Use your strategy to solve the problem.
- Evaluate : Compare your answer to your estimate. If you under and overestimated, is the answer in the correct range. If you rounded up or down, does the answer make sense (e.g. is it a little less or a little more than the estimate). Also check with a calculator.

## Word Problem Worksheets

Word problems are usually one of the more difficult types of exercises for students to get comfortable with. This is because we get our students use to structure and understanding what is expected of them. This takes them completely out of their comfort zone. Word problems lend themselves to be critical thinking exercises that rely on perception and to a lesser degree language arts skills. I find it helpful to spend a great deal of time teaching students to decode these types of problems to understand what is being asked of them. Then another good helping of having them recognize keywords within that context. Story based problems are all the rage at all grade levels. This is rightly so because this is the type of math most of these young people will do when they enter the workforce.

## Tips for Approaching Math Word Problems

For many students, solving math word problems is a struggle. However, they need to understand that word problems are just a jumble of words that explains a problem. However, you can teach them how to solve word problems with just a few tips which are given below.

Compile Given Information - It is helpful to have students get in the habit of writing down the data which consists of the things that are given in the problem.

Read Thoroughly and Highlight - You must ensure that you read the problem thoroughly before you start doing them. If possible, make them reread it. Any words that stick out that may indicate a math operation have them highlight by either circling, underlining, or even using a highlighter pen.

What Is It Asking? - Determine the goal of the problem by writing down the things which are required in the problem. There are often things present in the problem that are not necessary. I tell students to cross that out. I also have them write down what the problem is looking for such as units or simply write down what it is looking for followed by a question mark.

Determine the Operations Needed - Students should be on high alert for keywords that give away what the order of calculations is required. Take a look below for further help on this. Once you determine the operation, write an equation or expression to help you solve it. Now, figure out the equation in which the problem is about and compare the given and unknown values. To learn how to solve word problems in the future, they need to remember the previous practices extensively.

## Keywords and Concepts to Look for In Word Problems

When students first start working with word problems in class they are easily overwhelmed. They will often say that they were not aware that they needed to read in math class. If you show students how to digest these problems by breaking them into smaller parts, it becomes easier for them much quicker. We encourage teachers to help students first try to decipher the concepts that are in place and then look for keywords that may confirm those concepts. This leads us to understand what types of operations you will need to work through to solve the problem. The basic concepts that you will see in most story based word problems include: joining problems, separate or splitting problems, part-whole problems, and basic comparison problems. Joining problem types often ask us to either add or multiply. The keywords that are often found in these types of problems are, outside of the obvious, both, combine, increase, together, total, total, triple, and twice. Separate problems often are subtraction based problems they ask you to break apart groups to some extent. The keywords that will back you up here are the words or phrases: change, difference, fewer, how many, less, lost, reduce, remain, or take away. Part-whole problems often have you compare and individual groups against one another or total them, in this case they are the next progression from the other two. These types of problems often are accompanied by the phrase: how many. The comparison problem type is often the most abstract and give students a high level of difficulty. They require students to understand the nature of relationships between values. Students are asked to describe that relationship based on conditions that are presented to them. The more experience you get with this, the easier it will become for you.

Home > Math > Word Problems

Even though you will find a wide variety of problem types, in this set of word problem worksheets, the same basic strategy to solving these problems applies and works well. The first step is to read the problem at least twice and on the second pass, underline any words that may indicate a math operation. Words such as: gain, decrease, total, raised are the types of words that we are looking for. The words almost always are verbs within the sentences that they are located. The next step is to write a math expression or equation to model what is set forth in the sentence. Make sure to use different symbols to model each variable and check that it matches the sentence. The last step is to either solve the equation or input the values indicated in the sentence into your equation. You will find just about every type of problem and situation you could dream up on the worksheets that you will find as you scroll down. We have word problems ranging from the very simple task of operations to advance math-based problem types.

## How To Solve Math Word Problems

Many children have difficulty with math word problems. It's challenging to decipher the hidden mathematical expressions from an English passage. However, by knowing what to look for in the passage and what different labels and vocabulary mean, you can easily formulate the necessary math equation to solve the problem.

Word problems are usually one of the most difficult tasks for students. They are interdisciplinary problems that require good reading skills, solid math identification skills, and organization skills. Students first need to identify what is being asked of them before they can begin to even understand where to begin. Many students approach math by memorizing math facts. Those children have a tough time identifying math concepts or specifically phrases. It is always important for students to look for the phrases that indicate what operation or concept that needs to be used to solve this problem. Students that have a short attention span or difficulty paying attention to detail usually struggle here. It is very helpful to breakdown the individual questions.

To solve math word problems, start by reading the problem carefully from start to finish to determine what's being asked. Then, locate and highlight pertinent info, strategize how you’ll approach the problem, make a math sentence, and start solving. Once you have the answer, double-check it.

In the following sections, I've broken down each of these steps to provide more detail on solving word problems in mathematics.

1. Read the Problem From Start to Finish

When solving math word problems, many students just pick out the numbers provided in the passage, apply a mathematical operation, and come to a solution.

This method can accidentally solve some basic problems, but it's not the right way and won't work with more complex problems.

As such, it’s important to thoroughly read the problem to understand what it's asking.

2. Understand What Information Is Required

To solve a math word problem, you must first understand what it wants.

Each word problem describes a situation and then asks a question. However, some problems can be tricky where they ask the question first and then describe the situation.

As such, first, figure out what the problem is asking. What information does it want from you?

3. Locate and Highlight All Information That's Provided

Once you know what the word problem wants you to figure out, the next step is to find and gather all the information provided in the problem.

A math word problem will have all the necessary information you need to solve the provided question.

Some of the information will be plain numbers, and the other part will contain phrases telling you whether you should add, subtract, divide, or multiply them. It’s also possible that the word problem will include unnecessary information to throw you off.

You can later figure out which information is unnecessary and which information you need. But to start, highlight all the information available at your disposal.

4. Strategize How You'll Approach the Problem

Now that you know what the problem wants as well as what information is important, it’s time to strategize how you'll use this information to reach the solution.

That said, each problem is different and will require a different approach.

Figuring out a strategy will become easier with practice.

Start by drawing or doodling diagrams. Visualizing what the problem is saying can help you brainstorm how to use the necessary information.

5. Make a Math Sentence

Now that you know what the problem wants and how to approach it, it’s finally time to create the math sentence/expression that represents the problem.

When doing this, it helps to know what phrases and keywords signal which mathematical operations to use.

I've highlighted some of them in the list below:

You need to do "addition" if you see these words:

- Increased by

You need to do “subtraction” if you see these words:

- Difference between
- How much more
- How much less
- Decreased by
- Greater than

You need to do multiplication” if you see these words:

- Thrice (x3)
- Increased by a factor
- ___ Times more

You need to do “division” if you see these words:

- Divided equally
- Equal pieces

6. Start Solving

Once you have the mathematical expression ready, it’s time to start solving it.

Don’t be in a hurry. Approach it like a simplification problem where you solve it one step at a time. This ensures you don’t end up making any silly mistakes.

7. Check the Solution

After working on the mathematical expression and coming to a solution, it’s time to check if it’s correct or not.

To do this, you can try doing the opposite operations of what you used and see if you come back to the original mathematical expression.

Alternatively, you can also consult your teacher or the answers page on your exercise book to see if the solution you got is correct or not.

Key Takeaways

To solve math word problems, start by carefully reading the passage to understand what it wants to know and what information it has provided.

Next, using the provided information, strategize how you’ll approach the problem. It often helps to visualize the problem by drawing or doodling diagrams.

Once you know what to do, make the math sentence and start solving it. After reaching the solution, check it to see if it’s correct.

Printable PDF math word problem worksheets for teachers and parents to use in the classroom or at home. These word problem worksheets are a great resource for helping reinforce math skills. Math is challenging for students because it's difficult to connect abstract concepts with daily life. Word problems are an excellent way to introduce and reinforce math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Because word problems are applied math, they provide a useful way to learn and reinforce basic concepts. Eventually, students can work their way up to more complex math problems, which are skills required for standardized tests. One of the benefits of word problems for helping kids learn math is that they promote creative approaches to problem-solving. By learning to solve real-world problems with math, students use logic, visualization, and language skills to reach a solution.
