Ready, Set, Solve. The Velocity Word Problems helped teach and reinforce the concept of velocity using a multi-step process. I wanted to get my students to really read the problem and to think about the steps, not just plug in a bunch of numbers. For student and teacher reference, I provided a detailed answer key with explanations. The key can also be used as a handout to help your students facilitate a group discussion and to check their work. I hope this activity will get your students ready and set to solve.
