    Math Word Problems helps students conquer the "dreaded" math word problem by teaching them when and how to apply the math operations they already know to real-life situations. The developmentally sequenced problems in each book are arranged so they cannot be solved by rote processes. Each problem requires its own thinking/problem solving approach rather than applying the same solution . This is a glossary featuring terms used across different areas in mathematics, or terms that do not typically appear in more specialized glossaries. For the terms used only in some specific areas of mathematics, see glossaries in Category:Glossaries of mathematics.

    This book is intended to be used by children ages 5 to 6. Other age groups will also benefit from the book. Anyone can use this book globally, although the curriculum may differ slightly from one region to the other. This is so because the core content of Mathematics is the same around the world.
