How sure are you that you will get these three questions correct?

Do you have a goal for solving these math problems? If so, what is it?

Do you have any plans for how to successfully complete these math problems?

Okay, now you will solve the word problems.

You can use the scrap paper to do any math to help you solve the problems. Then you will take a picture of that paper. Please do not erase your work. If you decide to try a new way to solve the problem, just cross out the old work and continue working.

When you are done there is an answer space to type your answer.
