This is a simple PowerPoint slide show to walk students through solving word problems using 2 step equations.
It provides a method/strategy that students can add to their "problem solver" tool kits. Like any other strategy, it will not be applicable in every problem solving situation, but it will give students a place to being, to build their independence as problem solvers.
The slide show (9 slides) guides students through solving one word problem, using a 2 step equation.
Suitable for grades 7-9.
