Take your students around the USA with these multistep word problem task cards that use data from coastlines and land area for each region of the United States! Students add, subtract, multiply, and divide (through unit fractions and interpreting different number forms) to answer mathematical questions.

What if you could teach division at the same time you were teaching students to understand that a unit fraction means division? These cards were inspired by Common Core standard 5NFB7b, "Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction and compute such quotients."

But, these word problems have many other CC concepts embedded in them, including: 5NFB7, 5NFB7c, 5NBTA1, 5NBTB5, 5NBTB6, and 5NBTB7. Teach/review multiplication of decimals, different number forms, division, addition, and subtraction. Help students put it all together and expect that they continue to maintain previously taught skills!

Included in 5th Grade Multistep Word Problems Task Cards:

✔ 10 one-page sized task cards with 6-15 questions on each

✔ Student answer recording booklet with a US map to label

✔ Answer key

My word problem task cards contain themes that you can use year-round, no matter the season or holiday that is around the corner! Incorporating real-world, relevant themes allows students to connect with math concepts while having fun solving problems.

Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
