This set of four multi part problems assesses the depth of student understanding of the 4th grade Common Core Operations and Algebraic Thinking standards. These problems require careful problem solving and application of skills rather than the use of basic skills alone. This type of thinking can help to prepare students for assessments such as the PARCC. Each task comes with an exemplar showing the type of thinking expected when answering these types of problems. These are a great addition to your fourth grade unit on using the four operations, finding factors and multiples, and generating and analyzing patterns. All four problems have a movie theater theme.
