This download includes 8 greatest common factor word problem sheets with 5 word problems on each sheet for a total of 40 word problems. Each problem has space below it for student work. Each word problem requires students to find the GCF of only two numbers.
All GCF problems generally deal with grouping two or more sets. The real world contexts of these problems include: 1) cutting things into equal-sized pieces (string, rope, fabric, ribbon); 2) organizing groups of people or things (teams, field trip groups, dessert trays, goody bags); and 3) organizing rows of people or things (rows of plants, students, trees).
These sheets are great for:
During modeling or guided practice
Independent practice/end of lesson assessment

Grade Level: 6th
