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.

This set includes the following challenges:

The Vacation Problem: This problem asks students to plan a vacation where they have a ton of decisions to make--from hotel prices, to flights, to meal selection. Great for building math discourse and partner skills!

The Bakery Problem: This task requires students to use their multiplication (or repeated addition) skills to organize new display cases at a bakery. Different baked goods fit in the display cases differently--so students need to do some good planning to make sure they can fill the cases with at least 600 treats!

The Back to School Shopping Problem: This challenge asks students to help Michael buy his new clothes for back to school--and to make sure he has enough clothes to get him through a week of classes. There are a number of "rules" they must follow as they shop--and a clear budget to follow!
