Teachers around the world agree… word problems are tough! But multi-step word problems are even tougher! Why do students struggle so much with multi-step word problems? There are a few reasons why they’re so hard and even more reasons to build in additional practise.

• Multi-step word problems require comprehension! Students must understand the problem statement, find relevant information, and determine the correct operation to solve the problem. Some students need help comprehending the problem or may get overwhelmed by the amount of information presented.
• Problem-solving skills need some work! Multi-step word problems involve many steps and multiple operations. Students must identify the appropriate operations, use mathematical reasoning, and arrive at the final answer. Weak problem-solving skills can make it challenging for students to break down the problem into smaller, manageable steps.
