## This 3-Step Process Makes Math Word Problems Easy!

When solving a word problem, a student should always follow these three steps:

- Read the entire problem without trying to solve it yet
- Determine which part of the problem is asking for an actual answer
- Only then do they use the information from the problem to get the appropriate answer

- By reading the problem in full without trying to solve it first, students solve one of the most common errors that they can make for word problems – making a hasty answer that uses the right numbers and a wrong understanding. A full reading of the problem means that students have the full context of whatever situation the problem describes before they start diving into equations. For most students, this method even ends up being faster, because they aren’t distracted by trying to assemble possible solutions and trying to read the problem at the same time!
- Once students have a grasp of the general situation and context of a problem, it’s important to identify what actual result is needed. Many word problems discuss several different aspects of a situation, often with multiple people and steps, but only need one specific answer. By determining what sort of answer is needed first, students avoid getting lost in unnecessary equations and confusing themselves.
- Finally, now that a student knows what information the problem gives them and what answer they need to aim for – they can solve it! As students get more comfortable with word problems, step 2 becomes something they’ll pick up in the course of reading a problem, making the process even faster.

## 3 Steps to Solving a Math Word Problem

You don’t even have to tell me..

Take a minute and think about 2 reasons why you avoid word problems at all costs.

Maybe you don’t understand what’s being asked.

Maybe you can’t relate to the situation.

Maybe you just don’t know how to find and apply the operations you need to use to solve.

Maybe you understand the question but that’s it. You don’t know what to do to answer it.

You may need to grab a dictionary for this part.

Get your first introduction to the word problem and become familiar with the situation.

4. Re-Write the problem using these three steps.

Re-write the problem in your own words.

Re-writing the word problem given to you in your own words will do so many great things for you:

Challenging you to write the problem in the way that you normally speak.

Proving that you understand the situation in the word problem.

Replace the numbers into your revised word problem.

What is the missing number that would complete this problem?

Are their any variables already in the problem (ie. x, m, t, etc.)?

Name your unknown with a variable (ie. t = time taken to drive to work, measured in minutes)
