One-step word problems are perfect for students learning multiplication and division facts - perfect for third grade. Plus, these beginner-level problems are differentiated and become progressively more difficult.

The file contains EDITABLE blank task cards with pictures only - waiting for you to write your own word problems. You'll enjoy personalizing word problems to suit the needs of your students. You must have PowerPoint to add words to this resource.

PowerPoint is needed to edit these task cards. Images on the task cards are not editable.

You receive:

  • Cards 1 - 4 contain the basic information needed to solve the story problem. They are straightforward, with no extra information that the student must eliminate before solving.
  • Cards 5 - 8 are more "wordy" and contain some extra unnecessary information.
  • Cards 9 - 16 become a bit harder yet and contain information not needed to solve the problems. In addition, there are 16 one-step word problem task cards included.
  • EDITABLE file - 4 sheets of blank task cards for you to write your own math questions (4 sheets with 4 task cards per sheet for each task card style).
  • Directions for how to add your own questions to the blank task cards
  • Answer recording sheet for students
  • Answer key for teachers

UPDATE 12/2021: This resource has been updated with a second set of ink-saving task cards. The problems are identical on both sets of cards, but the new set requires less ink to print.

Assign just the right level to your students for their Interactive notebooks as exit tickets, or allow them to experience all levels in a game, like a scavenger hunt or SCOOT.

These cards were designed for third-grade level math students but are great for advanced second graders or as a review for fourth graders.

If you're looking for a word-problem strategy for your students, I highly recommend the CUBES - CUBED word problem-solving approach. It's a specific strategy that gives students a step-by-step process for tackling word problems.
