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

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 needing 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.

No answer key is provided because of their open-ended nature. There are countless solutions! We want our students solving rigorous, real-life problems, and the process should be stressed as students work to make sense of problems, persevere through them, and even work collaboratively. Make sure you check out all the different sets as they address many different math standards!

**The Party Problem:** Help these two siblings plan a perfect party! Students get a supply and price list and a budget--and they are ready to add and subtract money to see what they can get to make an amazing party!

**Paul's Pizzeria Problem:** This task requires students to look at all the menu options at Paul's Pizzeria to help a family plan their meal while following a few simple rules!

**Marco's Money Problem:** Marco is desperate to earn enough money to buy a new video game system--and students have a number of options to consider as they find ways for Marco to accomplish his goal!

Appropriate for grades 3-5—depending on skill level and level of support offered.

"My go to deeper thinking resource!"

"My 3rd grade students LOVED "Open Ended Math Challenges", and have completed sets 1 and 2. They are asking me for more this year, now that they are in 4th grade. They enjoyed thinking, organizing, planning, discussing and solving these challenges. They found them interesting, and engaging. So, would you please turn your creativity to some more? Please?!'"
