These short expression word problems were made so that students would have realistic problems to write expressions for. It has been difficult for me to find many word problems that suit this purpose, so I made my own. There are 2 sets of the 6 word problems on one page so that you do not have to use as much paper on copies. When the students complete these 6 problems, have them try to write several of their own on the back of the paper. My students always enjoy doing that, and I find that it helps them to understand the process much better.
