This word problem set involves solving equations based on levers or teetertoters. Problems involve balancing weight and distance across teetertoter. There are 10 problems of increasing difficulty with full written out solution keys. Students use a visual to create equations in one variable to solve . 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 often introduce 2 types of word problems at a time. If your students are just beginning to solve word problems, I have a free graphic organizer that might help.
