Engage your students in this real-world math task! This math task is perfect for your 4th graders. It could also be used in 3rd or 5th grade. This covers the standard 4.OA.A.3 in the 4th grade core.
In this task, students will have to solve three problems that involve multiplication, addition, subtraction, and/or division. Each problem has two parts and involves heavy thinking. The students should draw a model, show their work, and explain the answer for each of the three parts. This could take students a few class periods to complete.
Included in this FREEBIE is the math task, answer key, my scanned work, and a rubric for grading.
