    Description

    Are you looking for challenging 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? Looking for quick low-prep, ready to print math projects that are rigorous and meaningful? NOW WITH DIGITAL SLIDES!

    Perfect for when you...

    • need something for fast finishers
    • want something easy for a sub
    • are between units and want to focus on problem solving
    • have an observation and want to showcase high level thinking
    • want to work on collaborative work and math talk
    • need something for a math station or math workshop
    • want to use technology to provide students with quality math tasks

    This set of 9 challenges (3 sets of 3 tasks) 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. For some, 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. You can see exactly what problems are included in each individual listing.

    Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
    Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
    Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
    Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
    Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
