Looking for Test Prep Word Problems? Getting ready for a state test? Here are 39 multi-step word problems that are common core aligned. They will build vocabulary, comprehension, and skills. Students will practice solving multi-step problems, finding the area, finding the volume or calculating money, practice with decimals, practice reading data and finding the mean, median, mode and range. I designed these word problems for my own 5th graders to give them practice and help get them ready for our state testing.
I use it as a bell ringer, working on one problem a day. First, I give students about 5-10 minutes to solve the problem itself. Then, we go over it together. Sometimes I rearrange the order of questions, depending on the skills of my students.
