This was the perfect way for my 8th grade math and Algebra 1 students to practice multi step equations. My students loved practicing solving equation by working their way through this fun middle school math worksheet. After my high school math students completed this math worksheet they were so much better and solving multi-step equation and working with the distributive property.
Word problems, especially multi-step problem solving, is tricky for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. This activity focuses on a single story problem each day to help students build strategies and prepare for standardized tests. Fun facts have been added to engage students and give teachers a starting point to get students thinking about these real life math situations. Two-step word problems and extra information don't have to be a barrier to success with regular practice.
