    This set of 3rd grade math word problems contains 5 questions for each math standard. The questions are designed to help build conceptual understanding.

    These questions can be used for whole class lesson starters, 3rd grade math small groups, rotations, homework, math spiral review and math test prep.

    Math word problems help students take math understanding to the next level. And these Power Problems were designed to do just that. Not all math word problems are created equally, it is important that word problems are realistic, relatable and written to promote higher order thinking. Power Problems do just that!

    Combining a math word problem attack strategy with a good set of math word problems is a proven research-based strategy for deepening students’ mathematical understanding.

    You can confidently use these word problems knowing that the questioning is targeting conceptual understanding. Students will need to use their reading and comprehension skills while also applying everything they have learned in math class.

    Mastering the art of solving math word problems takes a lot of practice. With five questions for each standard, this set of Power Problems includes plenty of opportunities for practice.

    How Power Problems will help your students:

    1. Display Math Applications in the Real World: Power Problems will show students how math concepts apply to real world situations and why math is so important.
    2. Develop Critical Thinking Skills: Some basic reasoning and elimination skills can lead to success with multiple choice questioning, but these word problems will require students to read carefully, gather relevant information, solve the math problem and think about whether or not their answer makes sense in the context of the problem.
    3. Application of Multiple Concepts: Power Problems will require students to pull apart problems, solve multiple pieces, put them back together into a logical solution.
    4. Build Creativity: Procedural math questions don’t build a great deal of creativity. In fact, with enough procedural questioning, students will just memorize the answers. But with Power Problems, there will be opportunities for students to create their own equation to solve the problem leading to several different approaches.
    5. Teacher Screening Aid: The best screeners of students are good teachers! And Power Problems are a great tool for teachers to visually see the mastery level of each of their students for each math standard or concept.

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
    Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
    Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
    Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
    Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
