Could anyone really eat 15 feet of a sub sandwich in one day? That's how much this math problem says he ate. He actually started out with a bigger sub sandwich. How big was it to start? The instructor uses a table to illustrate how you can work backwards to find the answer.
In this math instructional activity, students learn to solve word problems by working backwards. Students read the 20 word problems and solve them, choosing the best answer from 4 choices. There are helpful hints on the page to clue students to work backwards. Note: The directions refer students to "page 13" which is not included here; problems can be solved without this page.
Sixth graders make up their own math problems. There is only one restriction. That is, the answer has to be the one you are going to give them in a sealed envelope. The problems that they make up can be anything they like. Let Students work on the problem together in small groups. Help the ones who are having trouble. Those who finish quickly could be asked to make up another problem using another envelope.
