Description

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! Then add in multistep problems? Yikes!

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 multi-step word problem task cards useful!

NOW INCLUDES A DIGITAL COMPONENT AS WELL! All problems can be sent digitally and recorded either on the problem slides or an included answer sheet.

You can use this to teach a mini unit on problem solving or simply use them throughout the year to improve math thinking! The problems are written in such a way that third graders should be able to access them—perhaps (if needed) with the support of pictures, manipulatives, or teamwork. 4th graders should be able to handle them independently. They are great problems for students to work on persevering, for deciding which operation to use, and for sharing different solution strategies.

The 20 problems included require students to use all four operations to solve problems with multiple steps. These problems are geared for students in grades 3 and 4 and stress addition and subtraction with regrouping as well as basic multiplication and division.

This set of task cards are perfect to use

  • as whole class warm ups
  • for small group instruction
  • in math stations or centers
  • as intervention groups
  • as a digital option for even more flexibility

Although these problems are geared for students in grades 3 and 4, they are perfect for older students 'intervention or additional practice. Solving multi-step problems is a critical part of a rigorous math curriculum and helps students really think deeply about the math they are doing.

Answers are included as are three rubrics to use to help in scoring the Standards for Mathematical Practice! Cards are included in both color and low-ink, black and white versions for ultimate flexibility. There are blank recording sheets that can be used for students to track their work, or they can simply do their work in a notebook.

Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = __ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?.
