Academic adjustment is adapting to every change in curriculum. Some of the factors that affect the academics are attitudes, motivation, and study habits. Mathematical word problems is one of the main components to this research which will also be a way on how to find out the ability of the students in terms of solving more problems in mathematics using k-12 curriculum. We conducted this research in order to find out the relationship between academic adjustment and solving mathematical word problems. We used descriptive -correlational method of research to seek and investigate whether a relationship exists between two or more variables. It enables you to make more intelligent predictions [1]. Our main respondents were Grade VIII students at Oriental Mindoro National High School (OMNHS, Philippines). This
research is supported by different theories (B.F Skinners, Thorndike, and McClelland)
