These activity sheets will give your students practice in converting word problems into multiplication equations.

We all think that math is a tricky subject. It has lots of confusing operations and rules. But there is one thing that all students are most afraid of. Word problems! Word problems are hard in themselves, and the part where it requires the translation of English words into Mathematics is confusing and scary! But don't worry! We will make it as easy as possible for you to understand so that you can get past them easily! The first step that you need to take when settling to do word problems is to read the problem entirely. Make sure that you do not start solving the problem before you have read the word problem through. It will cause more confusion than you are all already in. Now, start writing the things that have been provided in the word problem. And figure out what information has not been given to you in the word problem. Next, you have to look for the operation that has to be used in solving the word problem. In math, there are four basic operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. There are a number of keywords that you can spot that would indicate the you need to find a product: of, times, multiplied by, product of, increased/decreased by a factor of (this last type can involve both addition or subtraction and multiplication!), twice, triple, etc., each ("they got three each", etc.)

Being proficient at solving Word problems is a key skill for students to work through. You can easily recognize a word problem requires multiplication or division when it deals with groups of values. You will also be able to spot multiplication in word problems that use the concept of scale. There are often product unknown word products they usually include words like how much taller, bigger, or faster is something. Your students will use the following worksheets to practice converting word problems into multiplication equations. Some sets concentrate specifically on whole tens and hundreds, and demonstrate easy ways to multiply them.
