PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a collection of 50 non-routine math 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. In addition to building perseverance, they will also build critical thinking skills and expand a student’s mathematical reasoning.

Because these are designed for younger students, they are not true non-routine problems. This means that older students and adults will be able to solve most of these problems fairly quickly; however, for a younger student, these are non-routine problems.

Each problem comes in three different formats: 1/2 page task card, a worksheet with questions, and a strip for use with a math journal.

There is a variety of problem types falling mainly under numbers, logic, and spatial, so you can differentiate by the different strengths and/or weaknesses of your individual students.

This entire pack is EDITABLE. This way you can alter problems if needed or create more.

These could be used in a lot of ways - I give more specifics in the preview if you would like to know more.

The product also includes 10 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 this product for older students:

Non-routine Math Problems for Older Students

Some of these problems are also within my morning work packs (on the challenge problem section), so if you would rather have it that way, that is another option. Specifically my 3rd grade first half of the year pack uses 13 of these problems and my entire 2nd grade pack uses 18 of these problems. Some of the others are similar. As you can see, there are still a lot left to use in each grade level, but you may not need that many.

Therefore, if you would rather have one challenge problem a week that coincides with morning work, where many other skills are also practiced, you would probably be better off purchasing the morning work.
