These cards include the following types of problems:
1-4 One Step making change/profit problems
5-8 One step saving money problems
9-12 One step comparison problems (times as much money)
13-16 Two step saving money problems
17-20 Two step spending money problems (how much did I spend in all?)
21-24 Two step making change problems.
25-28 Two step comparison problems (times as much money)
28-32 Miscellaneous two step money problems
I like to use a 4-square strategy with these problems. Students use the 4 square template on page 13 to follow the 4 steps:
What do I want to know?
What do I know?
Choose and Show a Strategy
Find the Solution
Then students check their solution and make sure they have answered the question. If not, then the problem has 2 steps and they need to go BACK to the strategy box and follow steps 3 and 4 again.
