I’m determined to incorporate more word problems into my Algebra 1 course throughout the year instead of saving them until we review for the EOI exam at the end of the year. I decided the best way to do this was *gasp* turn it into a skill that students need to demonstrate mastery of.

I put together this quick booklet foldable with practice word problems in it. The questions are taken from released EOI questions from the Oklahoma State Department of Education. I’m not sure if this will actually be of use to anyone else, but I thought I’d go ahead and post it.
