For a complete lesson on age word problems, go to http://www.MathHelp.com – 1000+ online math lessons featuring a personal math teacher inside every lesson! In this lesson, students learn to solve “age” word problems, such as the following. Bret is 3 times as old as Laura. In 5 years, Bret will be twice as old as Laura. Find their ages now. Note that this problem requires a chart to organize the information. The rows of the chart can be labeled as Laura and Bret, and the columns of the chart can be labeled as “age now” and “age in 5 years”. The chart is then used to set up the equation.

Amazing, Life Changing Tutor

Before I met Jonathan, I was struggling through most of my STEM classes because I was simply not studying properly. He taught me all kinds of new study habits that would help me to save time, raise my grades, and lower my stress. Jonathan was specifically tutoring me in vector calculus and is an amazing tutor on the subject. You will walk away from a lesson with a game plan knowing exactly what you need to do before your next session with him or before your next exam in order to do well in the course. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
