Are you looking for a way to help your students become more confident in their math problem solving while also meeting their individual learning needs? These real world math problems will help you to meet the 5th grade Common Core Standards while also providing a challenge for your advanced learners. The multi-step problems will be perfect for preparing your students for standardized assessments and the constructed response questions they will face.
Over the years I have struggled to find word problems that meet the needs of all my students. Problems were too challenging and discouraging for some students and too easy for other students. When differentiating for my class, I couldn't find problems that were similar, requiring the same types of skills. That is why there are two versions of each problem: one at grade level and one advanced version.
Included with this set are:
- twelve multi-step math word problems that are aligned with the 5th grade Common Core Standards including six 5th grade level problems and six advanced problems. Grade level problems are coded with orange and advanced problems with green. (see preview)
- Graphic organizer to support students in solving and explaining the word problems
- Answer key
- Lesson plan stating which Common Core Standards are met
- Scoring rubric
Math skills included in this set: adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, multiplying and dividing fractions, finding fractions of a whole, multiplying 2 and 3 digits, multiplying, and diving money/decimals
**These problems are the same as problems #7-12 in my product Differentiated Multi-Step Math Word Problems 5th Grade Common Core (Bundle)
