PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Over the years I have noticed that students tend to look for routine in math class. If it’s a division unit, they will divide any two numbers they find! If it’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 learned—perhaps draw a picture or make a table to help . . . but, most importantly, to THINK about math. I hope you find these useful!

You can use this to teach a mini unit on problem solving or simply use them throughout the year to improve math thinking! The problems are written in such a way that fourth graders should be able to access them—perhaps (if needed) with the support of pictures, manipulatives, or teamwork. 5th graders should be able to handle them independently. They are great problems for students to work on persevering, for deciding which operation to use, and for sharing different solution strategies.

The 20 problems included require students to use different operations to solve a variety of fraction problems. These problems are geared for students in grades 4 and 5. Many problems have two parts—great for differentiation! Fractions is a huge part of the grades 4 and 5 curriculum—no matter where you teach, and finding quality “real world” problems is an important part of lesson planning in these grades.

Answers are included as are three rubrics to use to help in scoring the Standards for Mathematical Practice! Cards are included in both color and low-ink, black and white versions for ultimate flexibility. There are blank recording sheets that can be used for students to track their work, or they can simply do their work in a notebook. Watch for many other sets available on a variety of topics and at many grade levels.
