Math word problems often intimidate students. Even to those students who are very good at Math find solving word problems difficult. This is usually because word problems require converting the problem into a mathematical equation which can be solved to arrive at an outcome.

To become confident and successful word problem solvers, students must be taught good problem solving strategies.
