## Practise Solving Maths Problems

Kirsten and Alexa are making stars out of paper. Both started in the corners at a 34° angle. Kirsten says that the remaining angle measure is 56° while Alexa says that the remaining angle measure is 66°. Who is correct?

Solving mathematical word problems is a skill that does not come naturally to many of our students. This should not come as a surprise to teachers, once you consider all the skills involved in this process! When faced with a maths word problem, students must first understand the context, then they must identify the relevant information (and ignore the irrelevant information), then formulate a logical plan to reach a solution. It’s no wonder this skill requires a lot of repeated practice to master!

This set of differentiated maths worksheets has been designed by our experienced team of teachers to help your students practise solving word problems involving angles. Each two-page worksheet contains:

• 6 x multiple-choice questions
• 4 x open-response questions

To make it easier for teachers to identify the two differentiated versions (but not so obvious to the students!), a star system has been used. The harder version of the worksheet has two stars in the top right corner of the worksheet. The easier version has one star in this same position.

Download the black-and-white PDF, or if you’d like to make any personal alterations to the resource, an editable Google Slides version is also available.

These maths word problem worksheets would make a great addition to your lessons on angles. As your students become more successful in solving these problems, they will gain more confidence in their ability to apply mathematical reasoning to real-world scenarios.

## Delve Deeper into the Problem-Solving Process

Some students in your class may require greater scaffolding when it comes to interpreting and solving maths word problems. If you’re looking for a resource to guide and support these less-confident students, our Angles Word Problems Teaching Slides could be exactly what you are looking for!

The aforementioned presentation delves deeper into the problem-solving process by explaining a five-step plan for interpreting and solving maths word problems. The five steps of the Problem Solving Guide are:

1. Analyse the Data
2. Understand the Question
3. Plan a Strategy
4. Solve the Problem

The aim of this guide is to support students in solving maths word problems by breaking them down into manageable steps. This is a transferable life skill that extends well beyond the mathematics classroom!

Use the dropdown menu next to the Download button above to access either the easy-print PDF or the Google Slides version of this resource. (Note: You will be prompted to make a copy of the Google Slides template before accessing it).

As this resource contains an answer sheet, we recommend printing one copy of the entire file. Then, remove the student worksheets to make your desired number of copies.

For sustainability purposes, please consider printing these worksheets double-sided.
