PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Start a "Problem of the Day" program in your middle school math class!

This product is included in my bundle 180 Daily Middle School Word Problems, as well.

This zip file contains 45 "real world" word problems for middle schoolers in 3 different formats:

- a powerpoint presentation that contains one question per slide. This is great if you want to project the word problems onto a board and use them as a daily warm-up!

- a printable version that has 3 word problems per page. This is useful if you want to run off copies for each student and have them complete a word problem each night as part of their homework!

- a list of all the questions and answers for the teacher. This provides the teacher with not only an answer key, but it is also the easiest version to skim quickly if you are looking for a word problem that corresponds with a particular lesson.

A table of contents that lists each topic and the problem numbers that use that particular skill is also included, as is a list of the 19 common core standards addressed in this word problem set! An included table shows which Common Core standard correlates with each question.

Topics covered in this set of word problems include:
- decimals
- fractions
- percents
- ratios/rates/proportions
- area/perimeter/volume
- customary system
- lcm/gcf
- writing/solving basic algebraic equations
and more!!

Many of the word problems require students to read carefully to ensure that they answer the question that is asked and most of the word problems require multiple step solutions.

*** Check out my FREE Download "10 Free Daily Middle School Word Problems" for a 10 question sample of these word problem sets! ***

Great resource! It would be helpful to include examples with bar modeling.
On  October 5, 2013Math in the Middle answered:
Thank you! I appreciate your feedback. I did not provide examples of ways to solve the problems so that teachers can have students solve them any way they choose. I have had some students solve some of the problems using bar modeling and others have solved the same problems using other strategies. I love the discussions that take place afterwards when students share the various ways they solved the same problem!
