# Solving Number Problems

While the degree of difficulty may change, the way to solve word problems involves a planned approach that requires identifying the problem, gathering the relevant information, creating the equation, solving and checking your work.Begin by determining the scenario the problem wants you to solve. Either way, the word problem provides you with all the information you need to solve it.If the answer seems absurdly large or too small, search through the problem to find where you went wrong.

Since the problem mentions that the little sister lost two pairs, the final answer must be less than 23.

If you get a higher number, you did something wrong.

Accompanying each lesson is a copymaster of the problem in English and in Māori.

Choose a problem that involves your students in applying current learning.

The total pairs of socks owned by both sisters is 8 6 9.

Subtract the two missing pairs for a final equation of (8 6 9) - 2 = n, where n is the number of pairs of socks the sisters have left.

Once you identify the problem, you can determine the unit of measurement for the final answer.

In the following example, the question asks you to determine the total number of socks between the two sisters.

The lessons provide coverage of Levels 1 to 6 of The New Zealand Curriculum.

The lessons are organised by level and curriculum strand.
