# Mathematical Word Problems

In maths, we have been developing our skills to solve mathematical word problems.

We have been following a five step process to solve word problems:

Some word problems require one calculation, while others are multi-step problems. When calculating their answers, students are required to:

• record all of their working out
• justify their calculations to ensure their final answer is a reasonable solution to the problem.

The word problems we have been solving involve all four processes:

• subtraction
• multiplication
• division
