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. Metric pages are included as well for those teachers teaching outside the U.S.!

Appropriate for grades 3-5—depending on skill level and level of support offered. Download the preview to see exactly what you get--I don't think you will be disappointed.

This set includes the following challenges:

The Library Problem: This two part problem asks students to help the librarian reorganize her library! They are given different shelf options with the rules about how many books can fit on each--so using multiplication and division is key. It gets more involved, however! Students are then given a map of the library and are asked to use their measurement skills to help arrange the new shelves to make sure the library is functional.

The Football Team Feast Problem: This task asks students to solve multiple layers of a task...from figuring out how many guests will attend to how much food needs to be prepared. Multiplication sure helps as many food items come in "sets" (like 8 packs of buns) and so on.

The Wonderful Weekend Problem: This is a REAL challenge as students plan out a fun weekend for a family--keeping in mind their schedule, the miles between activities, how long it takes to travel, and so on.
