For years we introduced and taught students how to solve math word problems teaching them strategies to use such as underlining the question, circling important information, and looking for key words. Some of our students had success, but many students struggled, especially when the unknown was not the end result. They didn't truly understand the situation or how to tackle it. Luckily, we stumbled upon the idea of using numberless word problems to truly help students focus on the problem situation. It increased student discourse and understanding GREATLY. With repeated exposure, discussion and practice, students began approaching math word problems with understanding and success.
