    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 a short, ready to print problem solving "project" that can make for a meaningful math lesson? Want to help nurture a growth mindset about math?

    NOW WITH DIGITAL SLIDES FOR OPTIMUM FLEXIBILITY!

    This resource is for you! You might have seen these individual sets--some of my BEST selling problem solving resources. Now that set 6 is complete, I have bundled sets 4, 5, and 6 together to give you all three in one resource at a greatly reduced price! If you already own one of these resources, please do not purchase this bundle. Thank you! (Want all 6? Check out the link below for that as well!)

    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 each of the sets, the preview helps you see exactly what math is used in each challenge. 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.

    Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
    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.
    Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
    Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
    Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
