Here some examples of our word problem worksheets:

 


Read here why math word problems can be very challenging for both native English and ESL students.

 

Our worksheets with word problems are made by ESL math teachers and used in the classroom. We believe that math stories are very difficult for second language learners. The students have to put effort in understanding both the language and mathematical components.

 

Our worksheets use a very basic and simple vocabulary with words that most students will understand. The idea behind this is that the kids will focus on the math and problem solving rather than digging through their dictionaries.

 

Children who are not native speakers of English can come from many different backgrounds and we believe that also culturally biased math problems can lead to misunderstanding and that the math problems will become unnecessary difficult.

 

Please feel free to print our math worksheets and use them in your classes. The learning materials can be downloaded in pdf form. Please don't hesitate to contat us if you have any suggestions or questions about our math materials.
