Math word problem to the equation

Edutech Platform


Natural Language processing custom built deep learning algorithms to generate mathematical equations from Math word problem statements without human interference. During this pandemic we saw a sudden rise of internet education & need to have tutors for children when they have doubts. So a startup allowed us to build an app where Students or parents can find out equations for the problem they enter within the app itself.


  • Deep Learning
  • NLP
  • Machine Learning


  • Python

Key Technical Challenges:

  • Less amount of data to train our deep learning model. Data available for only uni variable equations.
  • Build a custom neural network which can understand data and generate polynomial equations.
  • Had to imply some research into this for machine translation problems.

Business + Technical Points:

  • Build a custom deep learning system to generate linear equations from natural language word problem statements.
  • Systems down the line should be able to fit more than 1000 requests per second
  • Easily modifiable code for his team to understand & work with.


  • We are able to build a system to generate mathematical equations of word problems.
