Welcome to the Mixture Word Problems guided learning activity. By the end of this activity, you will be able to set up and solve various kinds of mixture word problems.
If at any time you need help please ask a tutor.
First, you need to open a PowerPoint with a presentation and activities.
Click here to open the PowerPoint.
Once the PowerPoint is open, read and work through
slides #1-27. Pay particular attention to the formulas and how
the example problems are set up by using a table.
On a separate piece of paper, work through the two practice
problems given in slide #29. Make sure to use a table to set
up the problems. Ask a tutor to help you if you get stuck.
Check your answers on
slide #30. If you did not get both practice problems correct, go on to slides
#31-34 and determine where you went wrong.
You will now do a self-evaluation of your work. Next to each practice problem on your
scratch paper, write down in complete sentences what you did wrong and what steps you can take so that you will not make the same mistake again in the
future. Ask a tutor to help you if you get stuck.
Let’s see how much you have learned by
completing this quiz.
Use a blank
sheet of paper for your work. Once you are done, ask a tutor to go over your quiz results and the
self-evaluation with you.
That's it! Thank you for taking the time to learn
about solving mixture word problems.
