This is a new station for practicing problem solving.This set focuses on solving two-step inequalities and includes four different Poly Problem Solvers, each with eight problems. Students solve the problem and match the answer to it. I suggest using hook and loop tabs. This way, students can actually stick the solutions next to the problems. There are two extra answers in each case, so that student must solve the last problem rather than use process of elimination.
My station rotations are in groups of four. I like to use these as a partner station. That is, when the group gets to this station, they work in partner pairs on two different Poly-Problem-Solvers. They can switch if both partner pairs finish with time left at the station. You could also have the students work individually or in groups of four. There is a sheet for students to show their work.
I have included two versions. In the first, the problems and answers are in corresponding colors. That way, if a student drops an answer, you know which Poly Problem Solver it belongs to. In the second version, all the problems and answers are in black. Here you can print them on four different colored sheets of paper. I prefer cardstock for the weight and feel, but plain copy paper works, too.
I am working on Poly Problem Solvers for many other problem solving skills. Please check back for more!!!

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.
Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form px + q > r or px + q < r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.
