Dataset Card for AQUA-RAT

Dataset Summary

A large-scale dataset consisting of approximately 100,000 algebraic word problems. The solution to each question is explained step-by-step using natural language. This data is used to train a program generation model that learns to generate the explanation, while generating the program that solves the question.

Dataset Structure

Data Instances

"question": "A grocery sells a bag of ice for $1.25, and makes 20% profit. If it sells 500 bags of ice, how much total profit does it make?",
"options": ["A)125", "B)150", "C)225", "D)250", "E)275"],
"rationale": "Profit per bag = 1.25 * 0.20 = 0.25\nTotal profit = 500 * 0.25 = 125\nAnswer is A.",
"correct": "A"

Data Fields

  • question : (str) A natural language definition of the problem to solve
  • options : (list(str)) 5 possible options (A, B, C, D and E), among which one is correct
  • rationale : (str) A natural language description of the solution to the problem
  • correct : (str) The correct option
