How to Identify Addition Operations in Math Word Problems - The most difficult thing about word problems is figuring out what the problem is asking for. It is tat part where you need to identify the English words out of the problem and figure out what they mean here. Once you get that, the rest becomes easy and fairly simple too. But translating the words is the real problem and a little bit time consuming too. Luckily, there are a few steps and a few words to look out for in a word problem that will help you crack the problem. Here's sharing with you some tricks to identify addition operations in a word problem. The first step is to read the entire problem thoroughly at least twice. The second thing to keep in mind is that do not start solving in the middle of the problem. Try to get the gist of the complete problem, and then organize the data. In order to identify if it's an addition word problem or not, look for words like; total, altogether, sum of, increased by, more than, combined, added to and etc. These worksheets and lessons help students learn how to identify that a word problem calls for addition and then perform the required operations.
