Thanks for the reply.
I faced a dilemma when I first created my math web pages. You have to please your visitors by having good quality content. At the same time, you have to please the search engines by having enough keywords so that the search engines know what your website is about.
If I don't place enough keywords in each web page, that page would have a very poor ranking by the search engines. That equals to zero visitors.
I thought for a long time about where I should place my keywords. Placing keywords in a math page is not as easy as placing keywords in a web page that is just an article. I took the approach you disliked for my first grade math worksheets.
I took a different approach for all the other grades. I placed them not into the actual math problems themselves but into the numbering. Here's an example.

Math Question 5
A horde of centaurs and trolls attacked the small town of Knomville. Courageous Kelvin Knight was ordered by his king to kill all the monsters. Kelvin Knight single-handedly slew 639 of the monsters in battle. If he killed 271 more centaurs than trolls, how many centaurs did he kill?
Since the search engines were sending me quite a bit of visitors, about 600 to 800 unique visitors a day (and it is growing), I thought it was okay. And teachers from Singapore were linking to me too. So I left the keywords as they were.
I didn't face the keyword problem for my other topics - such as for parenting, phonics and homeschool laws.

Anyway, I plan to offer printable PDF versions of my math pages stripped of all keywords to my visitors. They should be up in a few weeks time.
And remember everyone, you DON'T have to pay a single penny for anything that I have created for you. It is all FREE!
Thanks again, Susan, for highlighting this problem to me.
