Teaching Strategies and Tips

In this lesson, students solve applied problems using the four-step problem solving plan.

In Example 2, providing a drawing of each stage of the climb may help students organize the given information.

In Example 4, students can check their answers by working backwards. Consider the fraction remaining after each deduction.

In the Review Questions, use the answer to Problem 6 to solve Problem 7.

Error Troubleshooting

General Tip: Remind students to interpret their answer in Step 4 of the problem solving plan. This gives students a moment to determine whether or not they’ve answered the question being asked in the problem.

In Step 4 of Example 3, the discrepancy between the (approximate) solution and the actual time comes from rounding in Step 3.
