- Problem solving - Rate of travel: word problems
- Rearrange Formulas - Students can rearrange formulas until their pencils whittle down to toothpicks, but it won't help them one bit if the formulas they use won't enable them actually solve the problem. That means students should be able to match commonly encountered formulas to context in word problems as well as rearranging them to solve for whatever value they want. Page includes sample quiz with answers.
