Word problems are maths problems that are presented as text, usually in a narrative or story scenario with a varying number of sentences, rather than being presented as a sequence of numbers in a particular order. Solving these types of problems helps with:
- Engagement in real-life maths
- Exploration of thinking and reasoning skills
- Development of an understanding of both how and why the problem is solvable
- Provision of practice using a range of scenarios, getting more complex over time.
Our ‘Wacky word problems’ sheets provide examples of a scaffolded approach, encouraging children to ask questions to help them. Starting off with simpler one-step problems and moving on to more complex problems enables proficiency and fluency. These problems also help children to develop the knack of organising relevant and irrelevant information.
