Solving Word Problems

Hello everyone!

I hope you had fun yesterday.

I thought I’d post a clip to help you with solving word problems, if you are finding this a bit tricky.

Remember to:

  • Read the problem (you might like to do this twice).
  • Make sure you are clear about what you are being asked to find out.
  • Pick out the key information that is going to help you.
  • Think about whether you will need to add, subtract, multiply or share equally (divide).
  • Apply the skills you have learned to help you solve the problem.

I hope this helps.
