The focus of this lesson is to teach students how to visualize algebraic word problems. This handout helps define concepts such as variables (ex. what they stand for) and clarify how to translate word problems into concrete mathematical equations. This is a lesson targeted at students in upper elementary or middle school.

Lesson plan directions are available at the end of the packet. Please review that information first before handing out the problems to students.
