Each of these 32 Math Challenge Task Cards has a different multi-step math story problem. Students will use all four operations as they solve the problems. There are some that involve money, measurement, or elapsed time. Answers can all be expressed in whole numbers.
A student answer sheet is included as well as an answer key so students can check their work. You may want to have students show their work on notebook paper and staple their papers to the answer sheet. These cards will work well at centers or stations, or for individual use. In addition, there is a label card and a Rate It! card that students can use to rate the difficulty of each problem.

What teachers have said about this resource:
♥ Our curriculum doesn't offer enough multi-step story problem practice, so this resource has been the perfect thing to use with them. Even my stronger math students have been challenged.
♥ These are a great resource for such a hard concept. My students enjoy doing a few little cards a day. They prefer them to similar word problems written in their book... if they only knew they were practicing the same skills!! :)
♥Another fantastic product from Rachel Lynette. My students are in the habit of totally freezing up when the see a word problem so two step word problems have been especially difficult for them. I have added these cards to my centers and have presented them as a "math game" and my students have begun to take the time to read through the whole problem. Thanks!
