Product Description

This is a review of work problems. It is set up differently than most Scavenger Hunts. Because these are word problems, it would be too difficult for students to copy the new questions from cards on a wall, so a worksheet with all 16 questions is given. Only the answers are displayed on the cards that will be posted around the room.

The teacher can have students work alone, in pairs, or in groups. Once the problems are solved, the students find the card with the correct answer, and list the corresponding letter.

Students LOVE Scavenger Hunts!

A homework worksheet with answer key is also provided.

* Common Core Standard:*

7 EE 4. Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

7 EE 4a. Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. For example, the perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width?

A-REI 2. Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.

A-APR 7. Understand that rational expressions form a system analogous to the rational numbers, closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by a nonzero rational expression; add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions.

Previous California Standards for Algebra 1:

12.0 Students simplify fractions with polynomials in the numerator and denominator by factoring both and reducing them to the lowest terms.

13.0 Students add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions and functions. Students solve both computationally and conceptually challenging problems by using these techniques.

15.0 Students apply algebraic techniques to solve rate problems, work problems, and percent mixture problems.

The teacher can have students work alone, in pairs, or in groups. Once the problems are solved, the students find the card with the correct answer, and list the corresponding letter.
