Word problems in mathematics often pose a challenge because they require that students read and comprehend the text of the problem, identify the question that needs to be answered, and finally create and solve a numerical equation. Many ELLs may have difficulty reading and understanding the written content in a word problem. $\begingroup$ Most math textbooks do not contain solutions to exercises because doing so encourages bad study habits. If you struggle over a problem and frustrate with it, then when you finally get it, it's result will stay with you, as well as the technique that you developed to get the solution - not anybody else's. If you get completely stuck, ask a professor (or us) for a hint.

For some reason, once math gets translated into reading, even my best readers start to panic. There is just something about word problems, or problem-solving, that causes children to think they don’t know how to complete them. Every year in math, I start off by teaching my students problem-solving . Mathematician George Pólya’s book, “How to Solve It: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method,” written in , is a great guide to have on ideas below, which provide you with general steps or strategies to solve math problems, are similar to those expressed in Pólya’s book and should help you untangle even the most complicated math problem.
