PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Math Challenge Problems for Enrichment - Critical Thinking and Math Reasoning!

This is a collection of 52 nonroutine problems. Non-Routine math problems are problems that do not have a conventional way to solve them. There can be many ways to approach these types of problems. They will also expand a student’s mathematical reasoning.

Each problem is in the form of a 1/2 page task card. These could be used for the whole class by showing one problem through the projector, put at a math center, or used to differentiate for your gifted, math learners. I use them with my gifted learners for 3rd grade, but that is a stretch so I have designated them as 4th, 5th, and 6th. The higher the grade, the more students they will be useful for; otherwise, they are great differentiation. I also use these sometimes with my whole class (and then discuss a lot afterwards). I find by the end of the year, my students are a lot more adept with this type of thinking.

The product includes: a cover page, a notes page, 6 pages of a matrix showing all of the problems and other various information, 26 pages of problems, and 14 pages of answers/explanations (because I really try to explain each one!)

Please download the preview to see more of the specifics.

I also have these exact problems in a worksheet form with 4 questions at the bottom for students to answer for $9.90. However, if you only need the problems, the task cards will be better for you.
