Six multi-step word problems that involve money! Students need to be able to add, subtract and multiply decimals to complete these problems.
These problems focus on using the strategy of drawing a bar diagram to solve them.
I used Index Cards to model the problems, so the students were actively engaged in creating real models. Each index card represented one bar. You could complete the problems without the index cards or diagrams, too!
Ideas for use:
-Tape each problem around the room as a carousel/center type activity
-Use INDEX Cards to model using bar diagrams
Included: Complete answer key & Student recording sheet.
