*Use substitution to determine whether a given number in a specified set makes an equation or inequality true. EE.6 Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set. EE.9 Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. G.1 Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. G.2 Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism.*Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.This worksheets combine basic multiplication and division word problems. These worksheets require the students to differentiate between the phrasing of a story problem that requires multiplication versus one that requires division to reach the answer. These workshes mix addition, subtraction, multiplication and division word problems.

There are many tricks for solving word problems that can bridge the gap, and they can be helpful tools if students are either struggling with where to start with a problem or just need a way to check their thinking on a particular problem.

Make sure your student reads the entire problem first.

As they progress, you'll also find a mix of operations that require students to figure out which type of story problem they need to solve.

And if you need help, check out word problem tricks at the bottom of this page!

If you've been working as Troop Cookie Mom (or Dad!

) you'll know what kind of math we've been practicing...

Students struggle to apply even elementary operations to word problems unless they have been taught consistently to think about math operations in their day to day routines.

Talking with kids regularly about 'how many more do you need' or 'how many do you have left over' or other seemingly simple questions when asked regularly can build that basic number sense that helps enormously when word problems and applied math start to show up.

This page has a great collection of word problems that provide a gentle introduction to word problems for all four basic math operations.

You'll find addition word problems, subtraction word problems, multiplication word problems and division word problems, all starting with simple easy-to-solve questions that build up to more complex skills necessary for many standardized tests.
