Are you looking for challenging problems to warm up your 4th-8th grade math students daily, help them persevere through complex tasks, and collaborate together to solve problems? Do you want a way to supplement and spiral review all year long while sticking with your regular curriculum? If so, this slideshow is perfect for you!
There are enough daily challenges for 140 school days, and answers (with suggestions/solutions) are in the notes. You could also print the slides off and use them as challenge work for gifted students, extra work for early finishers, challenging math centers, or standardized test prep. I typically use them as a 10-15 minute "warm up" on days we aren't taking pre- or post-tests, allowing 5-7 minutes for students to work with teams to solve the problems and another 5-7 minutes for me to highlight strategies and teach or reteach problem-solving skills as a whole class. Some are easier or more open-ended than others.
