Are you looking for challenging math problems that keep your students engaged, apply the math you have taught, and meet the standards of the Common Core or other rigorous math standards? Problem solving is a critical part of a quality math program, and students need as many experiences as we can give them.
This resource can help!
This set of 3 challenges can be used in a number of ways…as whole class explorations, as small group challenges, or as independent work for those students needed something more. In my classroom, these are whole-class explorations where students work in teams, share ideas, guess and check their ideas—and then present their solutions. The problem solving and math applications are high level and meaningful. See what you think! Three separate challenges are included, each taking several class periods. Each one also has an extension component for fast finishers or to use with an enrichment group. These problems would also be excellent work for middle school students working below grade level as the topics are relevant for them as well!
Appropriate for grades 3-5—depending on skill level and level of support offered.
