Our Multi-Step Word Problems Using Equations lesson plan teaches students how to solve multi-step word problems with equations and how to identify the best equation to use for specific word problems. During this lesson, students are asked to read multi-step word problems, fill in equations where necessary, and then use their creativity to create a poster showing each step. Students are also asked to read word problems and determine which from a list of equations is the best equation to solve that word problem. 

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve multistep word problems with whole numbers using the four operations and be able to represent problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity.

    I didn't like word problems when I was 12, and my daughter doesn't either! she didn't mind doing these. Actually said they were easy. Need to find some hard ones now!!
