Math Talks have helped my students build community and mental muscle! These 24 problems for collaborative solutions are differentiated into three levels and use 'CUBES' as a strategy for making sure each element of the problems has been addressed.
These problems involve whole number operations, including area and perimeter. While they are aligned with NBT.4, they also make great beginning of the year review for fifth grade.
