Product Description

This is a small sample from my mixed operation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) word problems reflects the Common Core State Standards for grades 4 and 5. I want teachers to see how many of my word problem resources are organized--with problems included in THREE different formats:

1. Version one has multiple copies on a page to be cut out and glued into a math journal. Perfect to use as a whole class warm up or to put in a math center.

2. Version two has 4 different problems on a practice sheets (4 different problems per page). These could be used as a math center, as homework, or even as an assessment.

3. Version three has one problem on full sheet pages that give work space for the problem, a place for students to write matching equations, and a lined area for students to explain their work—an important part of the CCSS and other rigorous standards!

There is a sample of each type of problem layout so you can see the style of the resource--and it includes one of the 3 rubrics found in the full resource as well.

In the paid resource, the 20 problems included require students to use all four operations to solve "real world" word problems. These problems are geared for students in grades 4 and 5 and stress problem solving and higher level thinking!

Why did I write these?

Over the years I have noticed that students tend to look for routine in math class. If it’s a division unit, they will divide any two numbers they find! If it’s a subtraction unit, they try to regroup everything!

For that reason, I try hard to sprinkle in a variety of problems all year that require students to think and apply what they have learned—perhaps draw a picture or make a table to help . . . but, most importantly, to THINK about math. I hope you find these useful!

I hope you find uses for all three versions of the problems…perhaps using a page or two from each as you see fit. You can use this as a part of a unit on problem solving or simply use them throughout the year to improve math thinking!
