If you need help solving Math word problems for your child, you’ve come to the right place. Math has always been a fascinating subject to me because of how logical and precise it is. It’s similar to learning another language and, in the case of solving word problems, very much like solving a mystery. If you are going to become good at solving word problems, you have to be a good investigator and be able to pick up on clues that will help you solve the mystery. Working with word problems requires reading comprehension as well as the ability to solve math equations.

Many students fear and despise the mathematics story problems (Math word problems) they encounter in their classes. Math anxiety is a real life experience and is usually made worse by the thought of having to solve a story problem.

Here is a basic procedure to follow:
  1. Read the problem carefully - find out what is being asked for. Don't try to understand the whole problem the first time through - just determine what the main question is
  2. Go back and re-read the problem to see what information has been given that will be helpful in answering the main question. (Math problem solver)
  3. Find any word clues that will help determine what operations are needed. (College algebra)
  4. Perform the required operations. (Factoring polynomials)
  5. Finally, mentally check the answer to see if it makes sense and is reasonable. Be especially aware of the units (ft., in., lb., oz., gallons, etc.) and be sure the answer is expressed in the correct units.
Don't forget to be neat and logical and have some fun - story problems are just a puzzle to solve. And visit to find Free math help, Math homework help or Free homework help for your child.
