Need help solving math word problems?

This section will illustrate how word problems can be solved using
block diagrams. Students, who have not yet learn algebra, can use
the block diagrams or tape
diagrams to help them visualize the problems in terms of the
information given and the data to be found. This allows the
student to decide which operators to use: Addition, Subtraction,
Multiplication or Division.

For students who already know algebra, we have another section that consists of solving word problems using algebra.

In addition to block diagrams and algebra, we also have a section that uses other types of problem solving strategies.

These lessons and videos show how to use the block diagrams
(Singapore Math) method to solve word problems. The blocks can
assist the students in visualizing and solving the word problems
without using algebra.
