All of the problems in my multi-grade database of 42,500+ fall into various categories (construction, word problem, multiple choice, etc) and one of those is that of WORD problems. These particular problems are MOST of the ones in this group of 4 Algebra Domains (A-APR,A-CED, A-REI and A-SSE) .
I have discovered that a variety of word problems can cause a student to more fully understand a concept.
At the end of the school year (whether it is an Algebra I or Algebra II course) it might be fun to go over these as a form of review and to see how much of what has been taught actually "stuck." Also, these can be used as a "problem of the day" exercise whenever you want. My intention is to develop several of these WORD problems PDF's for the various domains and grade levels.
Thes particular problems are both classical and unique. Take a look and and see for yourself if your students can benefit from these sometimes challenging problems.
4 worksheets are included: with 81, 152, 212 and 272 problems taken from over 20 skills that are themselves subsets of CC Algebra Standards. Take your pick as to which one seems most appropriate.
Also, 7 quizzes are included, each of 8 to 10 questions, of varying degrees of difficulty.
Take a look at the PREVIEW as it is typical of the actual PDF's.
[The problems in All WORKSHEETS and PREVIEWS are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]
