    At third grade, I would say she just needs practice. Walk her through a few problems. Help her figure out how to attack word problems by doing them with her for a while and then as she gains confidence, let her take the lead and you just be her cheerleader until she can do it all by herself. That's how I would handle a third grader who struggled with word problems anyways.

    I'm pretty sure Math Mammoth has placement tests on their website, I would just go with whatever the placement test said to start with. Math Mammoth goes on sale pretty regularly at Homeschool Buyer's Coop and on the Math Mammoth website. I wouldn't jump to buy the whole set until you are sure the it will work for your children.

    I agree with what MHA is saying here.

    Also, Math Mammoth has samples you can try-before-you-buy. The author is great at making sure that you have enough to try it out and know it is right for you.
