Students will have fun with this tournament-style activity that would be perfect to use during March Madness, although it could be used at any time during the year. These worksheets would work well for math centers or homework.

All students will work on the same page for each round, but the teacher will determine how many points each student must score before advanced to the next round. Students choose from a variety of one-, two-, and three-point problems to reach that assigned score. Each round covers one CCSS area, including Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, Number and Operations - Fractions, and Measurement. These worksheets were developed from the fifth grade Common Core math standards, so look at the examples in the thumbnails to see if it is appropriate for your students.

The preview only shows the first two rounds of worksheets. The rest of the worksheets are formatted in the same way.

**Updated 3/8/17 - The file now contains a PowerPoint file so you can edit the tracking sheet and create your own problems so that you can completely differentiate!**

Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, π’/π£ + π€/π₯ = (π’π₯ + π£π€)/π£π₯.)
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
