2nd Grade Math Word Problems Worksheets

Math word problem worksheets for grade 2

These word problem worksheets place 2nd grade math concepts in a context that grade 2 students can relate to.  We provide math word problems for addition, subtraction, multiplication, time, money and fractions.  

We encourage students to read and think about the problems carefully, and not just recognize an answer pattern.  We facilitate this by:

  • providing a number of mixed word problem worksheets (e.g. subtraction questions mixed in with addition questions)
  • sometimes including irrelevant data within word problems so students must understand the context before applying a solution
