Product Description
Ten word problems dealing with linear equations, beginning with simple equations and leading into multi-step problems with some extraneous information.

Problems are presented in both a worksheet format, or as task cards which may be cut apart to use in group situations.

Complete solutions included (scanned written work).

Suggestions for extensions are included, such as requiring students to connect the real-world meaning of y-intercept and slope or having students create their own similar problems.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many Common Core standards appear in these equations, some of the most relevant are:
CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.B.5 Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways. For example, compare a distance-time graph to a distance-time equation to determine which of two moving objects has greater speed.
CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.B.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.
