Abstract: The ability to solve word problems in algebra by eighth and ninth graders was studied in relation to five selected variables (attitude toward math, algebraic skills, critical thinking, translation, and problem analysis). Algebraic skills and analysis of word problems correlated with ability to solve the problems. Additional findings are discussed.
