Algebra Word Problem: 4 Leaf Clover Contest + VIDEO St. Patrick's Day

0 ratings

This is a challenging word problem. The audience for this worksheet includes: gifted, homeschool, and students who need enrichment activities. Also suitable for homework & flipped classrooms (we have an accompanying video).

Here's how mathematicians celebrate St. Patrick's Day: with a Clover Counting Contest!

In this practice problem, we’ll solve a real-world problem—about what are the odds of finding a rare, lucky 4-leaf clover, and the even rarer unlucky 5-leaf clover. We work the whole problem, step by step, in this video.

You don't have to be afraid of word problems in math class anymore, because we're going to solve them with you. We'll show you how to translate the sentences in math word problems into "math language." Each sentence becomes an equation. You'll identify your "knowns" and "unknowns," and pretty soon, with practice, you'll feel comfortable solving these kinds of problems on your own.
