Word problems allow students the opportunity to apply their math skills in authentic situations. All too often, children who are able to solve numeric problems find themselves at a loss when faced with a word problem. Some of the best problems to work with are those in which the unknown factor is located in either the beginning or the middle of the problem. For example, instead of saying, "I have 29 balloons and the wind blew eight of them away," and then asking "How many do I have left?" try something like this instead: "I had a lot of balloons but the wind blew eight of them away. Now I only have 21 balloons left. How many did I have to begin with?" Or, "I had 29 balloons, but the wind blew some away, and I only have 21 now. How many balloons did the wind blow away?"

## Word Problem Examples

- Each case of oranges has 12 rows of 12 oranges. The school principal wants to buy enough oranges to make sure that every student gets an orange. There are 524 students in the school. How many cases does the principal need to buy?
- A woman wants to plant tulips in her flower garden. She has enough room to plant 24 tulips. The tulips can be purchased in bunches of five for $7.00 per bunch, or they can be purchased for $1.50 each. The woman wants to spend as little money as possible. What should she do and why?
- The 421 students at Eagle School are going on a trip to the zoo. Each bus has 72 seats. There are also 20 teachers going on the trip to supervise the students. How many buses are needed to make sure that all of the students and teachers are able to go to the zoo?
