This is the first set of word problem worksheets the introduces multiplication. These worksheets include only multiplication story problems; see worksheets in the following sections for mixed operations.
Multiplication word problems are one of the more challenging applied math topics for grade school children to understand. The language used for a multiplication word problem can be challenging for some students.
These worksheets start with very fundamental multiplication problems to help surmount this challenge. Once these multiplication word problems are well understood, proceeding to worksheets that mix multiplication and division, and even addition and subtraction, can provide excellent practice in insuring that students understand how each operation needs to be selected appropriately based on the problem setup.
The worksheets are grouped into four variants with unique problems on each sheet. As you incrementally work the sets of worksheets, the arithmetic will involve larger numbers, although the basic multiplication word problem skills are unchanged.
