This book, by Leonie Ewing and Ian Ward, addresses the least popular and most difficult aspect of primary mathematics that of solving word problems.
This book takes a structured and varied approach to teaching the skills of solving word problems.
The earlier part of the book uses a pictorial approach and often involves a practical activity e.g. cutting and pasting the relevant word sentences to match the word problem. Later pages are intended for older children and extend the introduction of simple writing frames.
