Introduction to Math Word Problem Solving

As I have mentioned in the previous post, I will be starting a Math Word Problem Solving Series for elementary school and high school students. If you can recall, I have already started this series before, but it was discontinued for a while.

In this series, we are going to learn some of the basics of solving word problems and learn some strategies and tricks to make problem solving easier. This series will include tutorials on how to solve number problems, age problems, number digit problems, distance-rate-time problems, base-rate-percentage problems, mixture problems, etc.

Problem solving ability is developed over time. If you want to be good at it, then you have to practice solving a lot of problems. Reading this series will probably help you a little, but solving the problems yourself will make you a better problem solver. » Read more
