The key to getting students to master solving word problems? You’ve got to teach students that story problems, or real world problems, are first and foremost stories.
Even more than looking for key words, they must understand what’s going on in the story. Once they get the gist of the story & get that picture in their head, the mathematical operations become much more clear. Creating comic strips for a story problem really cements that vision for them.
