## Math Word Problems

- 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.

## 5 Tips – How to Teach Students to Solve Word Problems

So, how do I teach word problems? It’s quite complex, but so much fun, once you get into it.

## How to teach addition and subtraction word problems

The main components of teaching addition and subtraction word problems include:

- Teaching the Relationship of the Number s – As a teacher, know the problem type and help students solve for the action in the problem
- Differentiate the Numbers – Give students just the right numbers so that they can read the problem without getting bogged down with the computation
- Use Academic Vocabulary – And be consistent in what you use.
- Stop Searching for the “Answer” – it’s not about the answer; it’s about the process
- Differentiate between the Models and the Strategies – one has to do with the relationship between the numbers and the other has to do with how students “solve” or compute the problem.

## Teach the Relationship of the Numbers in Math Word Problems

I teach word problems by removing the numbers . Sounds strange right?

## Differentiate the numbers in the Word Problems

Join: put, got, picked up, bought, made Separate: ate, lost, put down, dropped, used

## Don’t be afraid to use academic vocabulary when teaching word problems

## Stop searching for “the answer” when solving word problems

This is the most difficult misconception to break.

Okay, they’re first and second-graders. I know.

It’s all about the relationship.

## Differentiate between the models and the strategies

The most important thing about models is to move away from them. I know that sounds odd.

This is a prime example of moving from an inverted-v model to a bar model.

Here is a student moving from drawing circles to using an inverted-v.
