Distance-Rate-Time problems can be taught in so many cool and engaging ways! Here I'm offering two Power-points with guided notes that I use every year with my students. Each year I add more 'cool' stuff to keep my students and MYSELF excited about this topic! The Power-points are good for introduction or practice, and whole-class, small group, or center instruction. The example and practice problems vary in degree of difficulty, and are easily revised for any level. I teach inclusion to gifted students, and this worked for all of them. Along with the practice problems, the presentations include music, videos, brain breaks, and real-world connections.
I've also included two practice or homework opportunities and a RELAY race for fun group practice. RELAYS are mine and my students’ favorite way to practice and earn extra credit!
Keys are included.
The topics covered include:
Distance, rate & time calculations
Distance ‘triangle” method
Standardized test questions
