Well, no. That can’t be the answer we give our children. Word problems are important because they are a help in making calculations and equations make sense in our minds.

Word problems force children to critically think about conclusions and how they came to those conclusions. Word problems get super tricky, they definitely aren’t straight forward or cut and dry.

That is precisely why our kids really need to “get” word problems. Kids need to visualize the word problems, explain the situation in their own words, determine the appropriate math operation to solve, and then know why they used it.

It is no wonder kids run into difficulties. This freebie can help them through the process of solving these math equations with ease.
