Students can easily come up with the answer to a math problem, but can they prove it? Would they be able to explain it?
This 4 page set includes 4 math problems, aligned with the Common Core Standard 4.NBT.5 and 4.NBT.6. There are 2 math journals for 4.NBT.5 and 2 journals for 4.NBT.6.
Each question encourages students to work through a word problem and explain their thinking in a variety of ways. In certain problems, they must model their answer and explain while in other problems they are challenged to show their thinking in 2 different ways!
*Note: These questions could be used to challenge Grade 3 or for intervention in Grade 5.
Put those math thinking caps on! Enjoy! :)
