Writing and Solving Algebraic Equations with the word "THAN"

Writing and Solving Algebraic Equations with the word "THAN"
Product Description
Students often have trouble writing expressions and equations that include the word "than" (ex: seven less "than" a number is two).

I always teach my students "That when it says 'than', it (the operation) comes at the end (of the algebraic expression)."
Ex: seven less "than" a number is two translate to n - 7 = 2 and NOT 7 - n = 2.

This worksheet includes 14 verbal phrases that include the word "than" that translate into one and two-step algebraic equations. The problems start off easy and get increasingly more difficult.

This can be used as a teaching tool to model how to set up and solve algebraic equations, as team work, or independent practice.
