This set includes 24 pages of multiplication word problems and 24 pages of division word problems. There are two levels for each operation. Level 1 answers are 50 or less, level 2 answers are 100 or less. For multiplication word problems there are several missing factor problems. For each word problem students will show the answer as groups of, an array, jumps on a number line, an equation and in a sentence.
Word problems - Multiplication and Division Word Problems - This bundle combines these:
One Step Multiplication Word Problem Worksheets Level 1
One Step Multiplication Word Problem Worksheets Level 2
One Step Division Word Problem Worksheets Level 1
One Step Division Word Problem Worksheets Level 2
Using multiple strategies to find and show the answer helps students to visualize and understand how and why multiplication and division works, as well as the relationship between the two. Students will see that they can use the same strategies for both.
These word problems come with two versions of number lines. One with numbers and one without for students to fill out.
Developing understanding of multiplication and division strategies within 100 is one of the four critical areas for third grade math instruction according to the Common Core standards. The standards expect students to solve word problems using equal groups, arrays, drawings and equations (3.OA.A.3). These word problems will help students meet this standard while preparing them to use the area model later on. Plus, they have some cute graphics and my kids really enjoy doing them!
Common Core Standard 3.OA.A.3
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Common Core Standard 4.OA.A2
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.
