The students will practice matching variable equations involving
addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to word problems
and solving for the variable.
Post the word problems on the wall or on tables around the room. Give each individual or pair the worksheet containing variable equations to complete. Students move around the room reading the word problems, finding the matching equation, solving for the variable, and graphing.
A more basic version of the worksheet has been included or use with struggling learners.
The activity can be taken to a higher level by having advanced students advanced explore different ways of writing and solving equations for each of the word problems.
