An ongoing series of studies shows students do better when word problems are tailored to their interests.

The studies, which were discussed at a recent meeting here at Carnegie Mellon University, highlight one way to boost learning in algebraic expression, a concept considered critical in the Common Core State Standards but which educators say is perennially challenging to students. The study found that personalized math problems not only made it easier for students to understand what was being asked, but also helped boost the confidence of students who may have been intimidated by the subject.

Word problems can be so intimidating! I think tailoring them to student interests is definitely a good idea, but we need to be careful - I've heard from some of my classmates that, if done poorly, it's a little offensive.
