3.OA.3 Use Division within 100 to Solve Word Problems
Have your students try their hand at these division problems. Inside this download are a total of 25 questions for your students to answer. While we designed these problems for third graders, these can also be used by fourth graders.
The problems include a variety of questions, such as:
- finding how many items are in a row;
- giving how many items are in a pile;
- sharing a certain group of items; and
- counting money and understanding age.
We kept the problems as realistic as possible and included details to help your students visualize the situations presented. To keep them further interested, each page of problems has two trivia elated to the word problem. This way, your students can learn not just math, but also factual information outside division.
We included two versions of the word problems according to how you will use this set:
In the first version (pages 3 to 5), clues are already provided to help your students figure out the answer and place it in the blank(s) provided. These clues could be the divisor, the dividend or both. This is best suited for your students who are starting to master division or reviewing their division knowledge.
In the second version (pages 6 to 8), a blank is provided after each question for your students to provide their answers. A scrap paper sheet is provided on page 9 for them to write their solutions should you want them to show their work. These are for students who have already honed their division skills and are ready to identify which one is the divisor, the dividend and the quotient.
Whichever set you use, you can also choose to have your students work on problems five at a time or one question per day. The Answer Key is at page 10. We would love to hear how it goes!
