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. Teaching outside the U.S.? The one challenge with measurement also includes a more generic "unit" version instead of "feet"! Because there are many solutions, no answers are able to be included--although when needed, teaching tips are added. Problem solving is really about the PROCESS!

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:

Backyard Beginnings: This problem asks students to help a plan a backyard. They start with a rectangular yard area and then need to place a fenced area, a garden, and a shed and use area and perimeter concepts along the way. Bonus questions included as well.

Rachel's Rugs: A store owner has a great rug design--but a customer wants it customized! Students need to determine what fraction of the sample rug is each color--and then redesign the rug to give a new design while keeping the fractional areas the same. Making the rug symmetrical is a bonus! Bonus questions included.

Cassie's Cupcakes:: This challenge requires students to take a set of information about cupcake cost, price per batch, and more to help Cassie decide what to sell in her shop. Problem solving and addition of money are key in this challenge!
