Product Description
Help students engage in problem based learning with practical math tasks that follow the common core method of assessment. This slide show contains two division math tasks and two multi-operational math tasks. Both task pairs involve the use of technology in the classroom.

I use these types of activities with my 5th grade Math classes 3 days a week. The students so look forward to solving another "adult" problem that they are disappointed when we have to do something else.

Typically, I administer these by allowing the students to privately think about their solution for 3-5 minutes. Then, the student pair up with their shoulder partner to work together, discussing how to best solve the problem. After 20-25 minutes, the class begins sharing their solutions on the board. I moderate a class discussion asking pertinent questions like the following: (to those sharing) "Why did you chose to solve the problem the way you did?" or "What other method/mathematical tool could you have chosen to solve the problem?" (To the rest of the class) "What impresses you about how [students' names] solved the problem?", "Does their solution seem reasonable? Whyor why not?", "What suggestions do you have for them from having worked your own solution?" This process of questioning proves very successful in encouraging respectful discussion and inviting deeper, critical thought.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about these exercises.
