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.
Some of 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.
The following are worked solutions and videos showing how to solve the types of algebra word problems that are commonly given in classrooms and textbooks. We hope that these samples will help you see how to approach the different types of algebra word problems.
