HW • Due Tuesday, October 21

Both Groups
Go through 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 in the homework and categorize all of the word problems. I want you to come up with categories that will allow you to group similar problems together, not just similar in content but in how you go about working them. This will take some experimentation. You may need to add categories or subcategories as you go, or you may end up combining categories. How many categories and subcategories is up to you, but I will say that 3 is too few and 30 is too many.
     This is basically an exercise in consolidating everything we have been doing so far. If it helps, think about it this way. If you were going to study for Friday's test, how would you know what to study when it comes to word problems. You can't redo them all (or maybe you can). But a better approach would be to organize them into categories and then make sure you know how to work each type of problem.
    You can use notecards if you like, you can type it up, but whatever you do make sure it is a final and not a rough draft. Also, when you label the problems you can label them as follows:
2.1 • 23, 24
2.2 •
2.3 •

     The following is just to give you an idea to get you started...

• Consecutive Integers
• etc.
• Discount
• Profit
• etc.
