Systems Word Problems (Setting them up) Notes (A5C)
Product Description
Yuck! Don't our students just hate word problems - especially when systems are involved?! Well, this 2-sided notes page on setting up systems of equations will help them EASE into it and see that word problems really aren't that bad.

The first 2 examples help the student see the word problem using pictures. They identify the variable and then set-up the system - no solving! (They already know how to solve - so the focus of today is just getting the equations set up). On example #3, they are given a diagram again, but this time they fill in the blanks to create the "math story" that goes along with the diagram. Finally, on example 4, they create their own diagram and story. If your students run when they see word problems in math or if you dread teaching systems word problems, then give these notes a try! Key included. 4 pages. TEKS Aligned: A5C
