This word problem set involves solving motion (for example, current and wind) problems using the distance formula (rate x time = distance) A single equation with one variable and a grid is employed to set up the equations. There are 10 problems of increasing difficulty with full written out solution keys. One method for use could be to demonstrate 5 problems in class and have the students solve the remaining 5 for homework. In a 45 minute block, I typically introduce two problem sets of two different "types". If your students are just beginning to solve word problems, I have a free graphic organizer that might help.
