Description

Are you looking for higher level math problem based learning/problem solving activities to use with your students? Do you want low prep, low ink AND flexibility—a math resource that can be used with small enrichment groups or can be tiered so you can use it with your entire class…but at different levels?

Do you want your students problem solving, thinking creatively, writing and talking about math, and working collaboratively? Do you want them working on math in “real world” contexts? And how about having both print and digital versions available in one resource?

This may be just what you are looking for!

For years, I have wished and hoped for a resource that would provide my students with high quality, open ended tasks to allow them to apply what they learn to real world situations. Guess what? They are hard to find! So I thought and I thought…and finally the idea for a flexible, high level series of problems came to me. They can be used whole class…with enrichment groups…for fast finishers…or even in different ways with different students.

This version is PERFECT for use around Thanksgiving or Christmas or any other holiday where a "feast" is in order (no holiday is explicitly mentioned) as it asks students to use the information presented to budget time and food to plan out the meal preparations. There are lots of factors to consider--this is not a fill-in-the-blank resource!

Each of the resources in this series is based on a different real world theme--like planning a holiday feast--and students need to use the "Math by the Numbers" posters (available in full color to laminate for centers and in black and white for easy copying) to work on a multiple step, open ended project. The activity is tiered so that the same activity is available at different levels. Not only that, but you get additional math practice sheets (also tiered), suggestions for math discussions, extension activities, and more!

This version focuses on elapsed time, basic fraction concepts, reading tables, and multi-step problem solving. It is ideal for grades 3 and 4 and could be used in other grade levels at your discretion. I hope you enjoy it--and the flexibility it offers you.

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.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Multiply one-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10–90 (e.g., 9 × 80, 5 × 60) using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
