Students will solve word problems about direct and inverse variation. There are 11 problems. Four of the problems give the students the value of the variables, the remaining problems are "story problems". Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see problem types.
This ladder activity is a great alternative to a worksheet. Students will cut the problems apart along the lines and work the card labeled "Start" and find their answer on the top of another card. They tape their cards together until a chain is formed.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. An answer key is provided.
