### Description

This set of 20 mixed operations (includes all 4 operations as well as money and other CCSS related topics) word problems reflects the Common Core State Standards for grades 3, 4, and 5. Problems begin at an end of year third grade level and move through 4th and 5th grade level expectations.

Problems are included in FIVE formats:

• with multiple copies on a page to be cut out and glued into a math journal

• on reproducible pages to use as practice sheets (4 problems per page)

• and on full sheet pages that give work space for one problem, a place for students to write matching equations, and a lined area for students to explain their workâ€”an important part of the CCSS!

• task cards (color AND black and white)

• DIGITAL SLIDES! Perfect for sending as math warm ups, using for remote learning, or as a part of a math rotation!

Answers are included as is are three rubrics to use to help in scoring the Standards for Mathematical Practice!

***Many of these problems have "EXTRA" parts to make differentiation easy!***

Why did I write these?

Over the years I have noticed that students tend to look for routine in math class. If itâ€™s a division unit, they will divide any two numbers they find! If itâ€™s a subtraction unit, they try to regroup everything!

For that reason, I try hard to sprinkle in a variety of problems all year that require students to think and apply what they have learnedâ€”perhaps draw a picture or make a table to help . . . but, most importantly, to THINK about math. I hope you find these useful!

I hope you find uses for all three versions of the problemsâ€¦perhaps using a page or two from each as you see fit. You can use this to teach a mini unit on multi-step problems or simply use them throughout the year to improve problem solving!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Look for and make use of structure. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. Young students, for example, might notice that three and seven more is the same amount as seven and three more, or they may sort a collection of shapes according to how many sides the shapes have. Later, students will see 7 Ă— 8 equals the well remembered 7 Ă— 5 + 7 Ă— 3, in preparation for learning about the distributive property. In the expression đť‘ĄÂ˛ + 9đť‘Ą + 14, older students can see the 14 as 2 Ă— 7 and the 9 as 2 + 7. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects. For example, they can see 5 â€“ 3(đť‘Ą â€“ đť‘¦)Â˛ as 5 minus a positive number times a square and use that to realize that its value cannot be more than 5 for any real numbers đť‘Ą and đť‘¦.
Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful, recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.
Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Mathematically proficient students understand and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments. They make conjectures and build a logical progression of statements to explore the truth of their conjectures. They are able to analyze situations by breaking them into cases, and can recognize and use counterexamples. They justify their conclusions, communicate them to others, and respond to the arguments of others. They reason inductively about data, making plausible arguments that take into account the context from which the data arose. Mathematically proficient students are also able to compare the effectiveness of two plausible arguments, distinguish correct logic or reasoning from that which is flawed, and-if there is a flaw in an argument-explain what it is. Elementary students can construct arguments using concrete referents such as objects, drawings, diagrams, and actions. Such arguments can make sense and be correct, even though they are not generalized or made formal until later grades. Later, students learn to determine domains to which an argument applies. Students at all grades can listen or read the arguments of others, decide whether they make sense, and ask useful questions to clarify or improve the arguments.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
