Word Problem Clue Math  Game

Learning how to solve basic word problems is the first step to your students becoming word problem masters!

Word problems are not just about math; they are also about words and the special way words are interpreted in word problems.

Some students interpret word problems as difficult. They struggle with understanding what the question is asking them to do. This is because they pose a problem but don’t tell you how to solve it. Word problems don’t tell you to add these three numbers or multiply these two numbers. The trick is to know what to do with those facts.

This word problem game offers your students the chance to learn the key words in a fun, playful and creative way.
