I had one day to spare before we started working on our semester review and decided to put together more writing equations and systems from word problems practice. My students have become pro's at solving the systems word problems and just need more practice on writing the equations themselves.
I of course, had to make it themed but didn't go with just one this time.... I went all over the board. How will our tale turn out? Who did what where and with whom?
The solution and story is theirs to discover. There are 10 problems total. I've printed the questions in color to hang around the room or hallway and given each pair or student the Math Lib Sheet to fill in. There really is not any work to show but there is a correct 'story'.
Students will answer the scenario with the equation or system that works them put that bolded answer in the designated blank.
There are 4 equations and 6 systems problems to write. They would be appropriate for Algebra and beyond.
