These Problem of the Day story problems contain real-world application of the 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.

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.

Skills included: multiplication, division, fractions, elapsed time, perimeter, area, multiplication patterns, variables, extra information, and writing equations

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths 𝘒 and 𝘣 + 𝘀 is the sum of 𝘒 Γ— 𝘣 and 𝘒 Γ— 𝘀. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Understand a fraction 1/𝘣 as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into 𝘣 equal parts; understand a fraction 𝘒/𝑏 as the quantity formed by 𝘒 parts of size 1/𝘣.
