Math Word Problems Made Easy with Proper
Approach 
The most difficult thing
about doing Word Problems is translating English
words into mathematics. Problems usually have
clue words in them. These clue words, or
keywords, indicate which math operation (s) to
use to solve the problem. Typically, once you
figure out the components of the math equation,
you're fine. In fact, the actual math involved
is often fairly simple. Meeting the Word
Problems challenge is accomplished by following
a list of hints and helps. Our Queens, Brooklyn and Nassau tutors will teach
your child "how to do" Word Problems
An extremely important step in effectively
translating and solving Word Problems is to read
the problem entirely. We caution our Queens, Brooklyn and
Nassau students
not to try to solve the problem when they have
only read half a sentence or paragraph.
Identifying the components of the problem
described therein so a "feel" can be
obtained is the first step.
"Clue Words" for Math Word
Problems We teach our Queens, Brooklyn and Nassau Word Problems
students how to figure out what the problem is
asking them to find, and what facts or
information they need but don't have. Then they
are shown how to pick variables to stand for the
unknowns and label them. There is usually more
than one way to solve math Word Problems, and
students need the opportunity to discover
various ways to determine the appropriate
solution. Some Clue Words are shown below:

Addition 
sum, total of,
more than, increased to, combined, added to,
together 
Division 
per, ratio, percent, out of, quotient, goes into 
Subtraction 
less than, fewer than, minus, less, how much less, decreased by, difference between/of 
Equals 
yields,
is, are, was, were, for, will be, gives


Multiplication 
times, multiplied by, product of, by a factor of



These techniques or clues
are one of the most important skills in solving
Word Problems in mathematics. If you begin to
solve Word Problems by looking for "clue
words", you will find that these 'words'
often indicate an operation. Although "clue
words" vary, students will find that there
will be consistency with them to guide them to
the correct operation to solve the Word
Problems.
