Writing equations is a challenging task for students (and it's sometimes challenging for teachers to come up with quality problem situations!) This PowerPoint includes 30 real-world equation problems. Students read the problem and then write an equation to represent the situation--answers are included! Use the problems to introduce writing equations or as a review before a quiz or test.
Note: When I use this PowerPoint, I just focus on writing equations. I do not have the students solve the equations--though that is something you could add. I have found that students do better when we just focus on writing the equation. Some equations may be written in multiple ways. I have just included one answer.
Like all my products, this PowerPoint is clean, simple, and black and white in case you want to print out the problems.
Follow up this PowerPoint with worksheets found in my Expressions and Equations Unit.
