Welcome to the Money Word Problems guided learning activity. By the end of this activity, you will be able to set up and solve various kinds of money 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.
Go to this website
and click on the word "money" to access the PowerPoint slides.
Once the PowerPoint is open, read through slides #1-7. Pay particular attention to the
formulas, the diagrams and how the example problems are set up by using a table.
On a separate piece of paper. Work through the six practice
problems given in slides #8-10. 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 #11. If you did not get all six practice problems correct, go on to slides
#12-17 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 money word problems.
