### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Over the years I have noticed that students tend to look for routine in math class. If it’s a division unit, they will divide any two numbers they find! If it’s a subtraction unit, they try to regroup everything!

For that reason, I try hard to sprinkle in a variety of problems all year that require students to think and apply what they have learned—perhaps draw a picture or make a table to help . . . but, most importantly, to THINK about math. I hope you find these useful!

You can use this to teach a mini unit on problem solving or simply use them throughout the year to improve math thinking! The problems are written in such a way that fourth graders should be able to access them—perhaps (if needed) with the support of pictures, manipulatives, or teamwork. 5th graders should be able to handle them independently. They are great problems for students to work on persevering, for deciding which operation to use, and for sharing different solution strategies.

This bundle of four sets of 20 problem solving task cards are perfect to use as whole class warm ups, small group instruction, math stations or centers, or even as intervention groups. Although designed to be used with fourth and fifth graders, these cards would also be perfect to use with older students needing additional review with multi-step problem solving. The 80 problems included require students to use different operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) as well as fractions, measurement, and more to solve a variety of real world problems. Many problems have two parts—great for differentiation! Students can tackle the first part of the problem--and can try the second part if they have time!

Answers are included as are three rubrics to use to help in scoring the Standards for Mathematical Practice! Cards are included in both color and low-ink, black and white versions for ultimate flexibility. There are blank recording sheets that can be used for students to track their work, or they can simply do their work in a notebook. Watch for many other sets available on a variety of topics and at many grade levels. If you wish to see each set individually, check the links below to see exactly what you get.
