Product Description
Are you looking for challenging real-world, open-ended 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?

This resource is for you!

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

This resource is also available in several different bundles as listed below.

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 Lemonade Problem: This problem asks students to help a brother and sister solve a dispute about how to run their lemonade stand. This task asks students to read both points of view, experiment with the math, and then make their recommendation about which child's plan will make them the most money! (Includes customary AND metric units)

The Field Trip Problem: The fourth grade is ready to go on a field trip--but there are some decisions to be made! Different field trip options have different fees, there are different sizes of buses, and students have to take all of this into account when they make the decision about where the classes should go on their trip!

The Airport Problem:: This challenge requires students to interpret a table of data about different flight options. In addition to having to deal with elapsed time concepts and layovers, students will need to consider price, baggage costs, and more!
