This differentiated product helps students practice solving word problems using dimensional analysis. The 5-problem set is formatted into a booklet that is designed to fit into interactive notebooks.
There are 5 separate versions of the problems included. The lowest level (Level 1) guides students by providing a set of the "train tracks" used in dimensional analysis with all of the units filled in to the tracks- students only need to find the information in the problem and fill in the numbers. Middle levels provide the blank train tracks or the tracks with the very first unit filled in. The top level (Level 4) is completely blank other than the questions- great for speedy workers or students who prefer to use a different method of solving. The final version has the scaffolding gradually removed- the first problem is a level 1, ramping up to the last 2 problems at a level 4.
These problem sets are perfect for in-class practice or homework. Conversion factors are included in the problems- no need to consult charts or provide those to students. Just print, copy double-sided, and distribute.
The product also includes a 1-page teacher guide and a full answer key.
