These Problem of the Day story problems contain real-world application of standards and are intended to be rigorous guided and independent practice activities with varying levels of difficulty. Some pages can be completed by students independently while others are intended for students to try to complete what they can, and then gone over as a class. The purpose of varying the difficulty of the skills is to build confidence in students’ problem solving strategies, while also pushing them to try new strategies. Some problems include many steps to reach the solution while others require students to explain their work.
Skills included this month: elapsed time, area, perimeter, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and writing equations with variables.
30 pages are provided so that a page can be completed each day, if you wish, with additional pages going home for independent practice. If you choose to send some home, I’d recommend sending home the easier pages so that they can be completed without parent support. These can be easily printed and stapled for daily use, or these are also perfect for inclusion in interactive notebooks.
