This resource includes 25 decimal word problems for use in interactive notebooks. The word problems are aligned with 5th grade math standards and include adding and subtracting decimals (10 problems), multiplying with decimals (8 problems), and dividing with decimals (7 problems).
Word problems are huge in Common Core and students need to be prepared to not only solve them, but to show and prove their thinking. I created this resource to help my students meet this requirement.
Depending on your printer settings and the size of the notebooks you are using, you may need to print the paper at 80-90% to have it fit in your notebook of choice.
The students write the solution on the word problem paper and then show their work, explain the steps they took or prove their answer underneath the word problem on their notebook paper.
