Tired of using phone-plan and gym membership word problems? We created a bank of word problems based on social issues and diversity that enhance algebraic concepts. Economic diversity, gender equality, and literacy rates are used to reinforce linear equations and solving equations and other algebraic concepts. We hope to spark change through algebra.
