Finding Solutions by Working Backwards

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.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
