Product Description

Are you looking for challenging math problem solving tasks that keep your students engaged, apply the math you have taught, and meet the rigor of the Common Core State Standards?

This resource is for you!

This set of 3 math problem solving challenges can be used in a number of ways…as whole class explorations, as small group challenges, or as independent work for those students needing something more. In my classroom, these are often 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. Because grade 2-3 students may not have experienced this type of problems solving before, I have offered the tasks with different types of support. In some cases, I offer different levels of challenge. In other cases, tables and other organizers are provided to help students see what work needs to be done and to help with precision and accuracy.

***************************************************

Each set in this four-set bundle is themed by season and will be released over the next few months. Buy the sets individually or buy the bundle now and get the updates as they are released.

Winter, Spring, and Summer: Available now

Fall: Available March, 2019

Appropriate for grades 2-3, depending on skill level and level of support offered or for grades 4-5 for review or for less experienced problem solvers.

Here are the 3 challenges!

A Day at the Beach

This challenge asks students to plan for a day at the beach by purchasing supplies before the trip—and to solve some problems they encounter while they are there. It focuses on addition and money skills. The task is available in “Level A” which has only whole dollars (ex. $5) and “Level B” which uses money with decimals (ex. $3.25). You can use either version for your whole class or you can differentiate within the class because the task stays the same no matter which set of numbers you use.

Camping Cookout

This challenge requires students to plan a meal for a baseball team. They will need to figure out how much food by thinking about “groups” of food (repeated addition or multiplication) and then also to figure out the cost! This task requires lots of planning, organizing work, and adding or multiplying.

Festival Fun

The Festival Fun challenge asks students to use a set of information about tickets for a festival to find four DIFFERENT ways for a family to use their tickets. The task then also provides several other problem solving experiences as well.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These problems are meant to take extended periods of time! Please allow students to work long enough to do high quality work! These problems often take 2-3 class periods...especially if you give ample work time, pull the class together to share ideas/troubleshoot along the way, share tips, and so on.

Remember, part of “problem solving” involves “problems!” so don’t expect these to be easy for your students who are used to getting a solution quickly—or who expect there to only be one “right” answer! Celebrate great ideas and strategies… sometimes the process is more important than getting a correct answer in the end! Common Core connection pages are included, but know that students may use a variety of strategies to solve these so they are just “connections” to help you with your planning. Most answers vary because these are open ended challenges, but each task does have one page of more computation-based problems and the answers for these are included.
