Word Problem Mania!

Third Grade fun with math word problems!

- Think about CBS… but this time we’re not watching TV! We are solving word problems!
C: Circle the important numbers.

B: Box in the question.

S: Solve & label the word problem!

Answer:

59 books

C: Circle the important numbers.

B: Box in the question.

S: Solve & label the word problem!

This time there will be MORE than one step in the word problem!

You will have to take your time and think really hard to solve these tricky math word problems!

This time, when we don’t know part of the word problem we will represent what we don’t know with a letter! This is called ALGEBRA! (You are SO grown up to be doing algebra already. Your teachers didn’t learn algebra until they were in middle school!)

Here is an example:

42 + 13 – 3 = x

or

62 + 37 – 41 = a

Kendyl had 56 balloons. She blew up 76 more balloons. Then 17 popped. How many balloons is Kendyl left with?

(These problems have more than one step… we might have to add AND subtract in some of them! Yikes!)

Kendyl had 56 balloons. She blew up 76 more balloons. Then 17 popped. How many balloons is Kendyl left with?

Kendyl had 56 balloons. She blew up 76 more balloons. Then 17 popped. How many balloons is Kendyl left with?

Remember that we need to use a letter to represent the information that we don’t know yet!

56 + 76 – 17 = b

Number model:

Now we can solve for the letter b!

56 + 76 – 17 = b

Number model:

56 + 76 – 17 = 115 balloons

Answer:

Evan has a large collection of books. He gave his best friend 14 books and his brother 7 books. Now Evan has 60 books. How many books did he start with?

Remember that we need to use a letter to represent the information that we don’t know yet!

60 + 7 + 14 = n

Number model:

60 + 7 + 14 = n

Number model:

60 + 7 + 14 = 81 books

Answer:

Ronan had 10 Snickers bars. Michael gave him some Hershey bars and 20 Crunch bars. Ronan now has 42 candy bars total. How many Hershey bars did Michael give Ronan?
