Writing Linear Equations for Word Problems Related to Teens!

Do you want your middle school students engaged in "writing linear equations" for "word problems they really care about? Do you want an activity that is ready to go in which your students will be highly engaged? Do you need to differentiate learning in your class?

That is what this activity, or project, is all about! These real world "word problems" are written all about situations in the lives of teens! The "word problems" are varied in the types of equations that your students need to write so they have to really think and not just work in automatic mode.

Your students will be actively engaged as they write and solve "linear equations" for the ten real world situations! Your upper level students will extend their thinking by writing their own questions, equations, and solutions for the situation in each word problem. All of this is laid out in an easy to follow format for you and your students that works well for individuals, groups, and math stations!
