All word problems are dynamic (in other words, they regenerate a new problem each time you open them or click refresh on your browser).
The words in the particular problem will not change but the numbers will.
Children who struggle converting a word problem into a math equation will find it reassuring (confidence builder) to revisit the same verbal clues with different numbers, so consider printing a couple regenerations of each problem.
In a classroom setting you can provide a problem to partners or a group of students to solve together and then provide a regeneration of the same problem for the children to do solo.
The books are designed in such a way that each section has six stages of questions to be worked through.
Every stage is split into three levels, for example 1a, 1b or 1c, based on achievement.
