Understanding Math Story Problems
Martha McGlothlin

These three workbooks teach students how to use language to comprehend and solve math story problems and to apply these principles to everyday use. They can be used individually or in groups and include suggestions for both teachers and parents. Key vocabulary words and phrases are presented as clues to guide students in selecting the calculations to use to solve story problems. This is especially helpful for students who may be able to perform the calculations but who cannot always interpret the language in the story problems. Book 1 is for students who read a second grade level, Book 2 for third grade readers, and Book 3 is for those at fourth grade or higher. The problems are controlled for vocabulary, sentence length, and complexity according to reading level. A pretest in each workbook identifies students who are unable to perform the calculations required in the story problems.
