Now that we are moving towards embracing all of the Common Core Standards, I found that I have very few resources to help. I am beginning to create Math Word problem sets that are set up like the constructed response questions that will correlate to the 3rd Grade Math Common Core standards.
Included in this Set:
*Teacher Notes & Ideas for how to use this in your room
*10 Constructed Response Division Word Problems (Each problem is very thorough, including multi-step problems, and asking multiple questions about the word problem, prompting students to really have to reason through how they solve the problems)
Common Core Standards Covered in this bundle:
Operations and Algebraic Thinking 3.OA-
Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division.
3.0A1. Interpret products of whole numbers.
3.OA2. Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers.
3.OA3. Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities.
3.OA4. Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers.
3.OA5. Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship
between multiplication and division.Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and
3.OA6. Understand division as an unknown-factor problem.
3.OA7. Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division
Solve problems involving the four operations, and identify and
explain patterns in arithmetic.
3.OA8. Solve two-step word problems using the four operations
3.OA9. Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations.
If you have had any experience with the constructed response type word problems, then you know they encompass a lot more than what the students are use to in a word problem. With the common core standards, students are expected to understand division on much deeper level than before. Students are expected to not only show how they solved the problems, but explain in words how they solved it. These word problems are set up in that format to met the Common Core expectations,and it will guide your students to critically think about division. This set includes questions relating to the Division Standards. I have another set listed with multiplication word problems in the same format.
