Problem solving is one of the most challenging skills we teach in math. Research shows the best way to build these skills is through short, purposeful daily practice beginning with single step story problems and building in complexity once students are ready to tackle more challenging word problems with extra information and multiple steps.
This daily problem solving pack is designed to take less than 15 minutes per day including giving students time to solve, discuss, and review. Spiraled practice includes single-step, multi-step, and extra information problems to help build your students' capacity for critical reading and problem solving with mathematics. The problem complexity will build across the months, preparing your students for success in 7th grade and beyond.
