This packet includes 12 pages with one word problem on each page. The words problems in this set involve addition and subtraction and the situations include extraneous numbers. The page format allows students to show mathematical thinking by finding important information, choosing and showing strategies, writing equations, and labeling solutions. Word problems provide a context for developing numerical fluency. A suggested grading rubric poster is included. A variety of problem sets by Dr G are available and no word problems or equations are repeated from one set to another.
