Math using word problems most of the time?


Recommended Posts

Dd does SO MUCH BETTER when doing word problems. She is a visual, right-brained thinker, and I think the story helps her understand what to do. In any case, she loves them. She is capable of doing problems using just the numbers, but prefers and has a much easier time with word problems. We are taking a break from her formal math and doing LoF, and primary grade challenge math for a while. My question is, would there be an issue if most of her math was in word problem/story form? I'd continue to have her do a few 'just numbers' problems, but the majority would be story form. Would we regret this later?
