This product aligns to Common Core State Standards 7.EE.3 and 7.EE.4. Four activities are included.
Detailed Teacher Notes and Answer Keys are included.
1st Activity – Decimals – Fractions – Percents
The first activity is a prerequisite for standard 7.EE.3 and 7.EE.4. This is included for you to have a review of the meaning of percent and the process of changing from decimal or fraction to percent and vice versa. Students must master these skills before they can solve problems involving rational numbers.
2nd Activity – Word Problems with Rational Numbers
This activity includes a variety of word problems. Students will solve problems that deal with all kinds of rational numbers. They may solve the problems any way they choose, but they must show their work to explain their reasoning.
3rd Activity – Write and Solve Equations
Students are required to write an equation to represent a word problem. They must define a variable, write the equation, solve the equation and write the answer in a sentence.
4th Activity – Write and Solve Inequalities
Students find the solutions to word problems by writing and solving inequalities. Students must be able to graph the solutions on a number line and describe the solutions.
The 3rd and 4th activities are to be used after students have been taught how to solve multi-step equations and inequalities.
