Clues for Choosing Operations in Word Problems

Clues for Choosing Operations in Word Problems
Product Description
Many have tried to distill lists of words that give clues to whether to add, subtract, multiply or divide to solve word problems. Being very opinionated, we usually take exception to them for one reason or another. For instance, it bugs us when kids are told that the word “each” indicates either multiplication or division. . . hmmm, not too helpful. This is my best effort to date in making my own list. I’m sure we’ll end up changing something at some point, and will update it on here when we do.
