Students use problem solving strategies to solve multiplication and division word problems. The students are presented with a word problem and must record their key numbers and decide on their operation. Students would then solve the problem.

The challenge and rigor comes from the next step. Students must turn that problem into a similar problem, only they must use the opposite operation.

Example:
Susie has an insect collection. She has 10 insects in each container. If
she has 3 containers, how many insects are there in all?
Multiplication or Division

Key Numbers and Labels:
10 insects/container, 3 containers, 30 insects total.

Equation: 10 x 3 = 30

Rewrite the word problem to solve using the opposite operation:
Susie has 30 insects total. If she puts the same number of insects into 3 containers, how many insects will she put into each container?

Equation: 30 divided by 3 = 10

This comes with 10 problems which is PLENTY. This activity really takes a lot of time and could be broken down and done over the span of several days.
