Math Exercise Kid - Word Problem

My friend always complains about her kids getting bad grades, especially the math exam. I found that kids are quite good at numbers but not the relationship between numbers. Let's say John had 20 apples and he ate 3 of them. How many apples does he have now? We all know it is 20 subtract by 3 equals 17. But why we use subtraction? Kids always "Okay, there are two numbers. Let's try addition first!" They are focusing on the answer, not the method to process it. This may be the result of multiple-choice type questions. Now kids want to pick an answer instead of finding it.

Our goal is to install all word problems to our Math Exercise Kid(s). And we really want your support.
