Product Description
Math enrichment for your math centers, early finishers, or test prep. This set includes 17 non-routine math word problems. Each problem comes with three pages (independent, guided practice, and solution) and is designed for students in grades 3-6. Students do not need to have an understanding of algebraic equations in order to solve.

Level 1: Independent practice. The problem and the strategy for independent practice.
Level 2: Guided practice: The beginning of the solution for a guided practice opportunity. Reduce frustration and scaffold your students' learning.

Page three includes the problem and the solution.

These problems are great to use as Problem of the Week challenges for your math students or for enrichment centers. The problems can also be printed as task cards, used for test prep., or as homework. Use the guided practice to reduce frustration and to increase problem solving stamina. Great practice for math competitions and math clubs, too!

Challenge your students to apply critical thinking skills and problem solving strategies to non-routine word problems.

If you're looking for ways to differentiate instruction within your math class, consider using the guided practice to scaffold and build confidence. (Hint: this will also reduce the "I don't get it" complaints from your students... and parents!)

Post one problem per week, give as homework, or use for enrichment among your early finishers.

Strategies include:
Find a pattern (3 problems)
Make a table (2 problems)
Guess and check with a table (3 problems)
Draw a picture/diagram (4 problems)
Find the value of one (3 problems)
Work backwards (2 problems)
