-In this activity, students will have 12 equation cards and 12 strip diagram cards. They will match each equation with the strip diagram that represents it. There are corresponding answer cards as well if you choose to have your students solve the equations.
-These twelve multi-step story problem cards can be solved using strip diagrams. There are three different recording sheets provided, so you can choose how much guidance you want your students to have when creating and using strip diagrams.
Recording sheet A has the strip diagrams completely filled in, with a variable representing the unknown number.
Recording sheet B has the strip diagrams drawn without any values filled in. Students may use these diagrams to fill in the values themselves and solve for the unknown number.
Recording sheet C is blank so that students may create their own strip diagrams.
Each recording sheet has a place for students to write an equation representing the problem, as well as a place to record the answer.
