So I was, in my pure innocense, googling for math word problems. Little did I know I'd only find word problems for kindergarten.

Anyone got a good site for intermediate (17-21) word problems? Or just math problems in general? :D

I don't think googling math word problems will help in google search. We have to be more specific for the type of the problem. For example; if we google fractions division word problems it google shows some good sites having grade 6 or higher word problems in math.
So the key is to more specific in google.

What exactly was your search criteria? If you add "algebra" or "algebra 2" to your search, that would probably bring things up to high school algebra level.

I'm guessing you aren't talking about this:

A site (like a website) is not necessary. Many Basic Arithmetic, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2 books have plenty of word problems. You could maybe find a few nice comparable word problems on www.purplemath.com .
