Math Word Problems Worksheets

Word problems worksheets for kindergarten to grade 5

Our word problems worksheets cover most of the elementary school curriculum; they are best attempted after a student is familiar with the underlying skill. We include many mixed word problems or word problems with irrelevant data so that students must think about the problem carefully rather than just apply a formulaic  solution.
