Word Problems


Math problems often won't come in pre-made equations. That's where word problems come in.


Word problems teach students to recognize and solve the math problems that arise in everyday situations. We teach students how to analyze word problems and determine the steps to find a solution. Students will gain analytical skills, learn to distinguish important information, and learn to derive the equations they need to find the solution.

Many of our math students who come in have difficulty with the word problems in their classes. Many of them already know the math, but their English vocabulary just hasn't caught up. That's why we developed our math vocabulary lessons for CTY students and our math students. We've seen great results from those units, and the students' test scores prove it.
