Description

Are you looking for challenging math performance tasks that keep your students engaged, apply the math you have taught, and meet the standards of the Common Core or other rigorous math standards? Are you too busy to do this on your own? I've got your back!

Based on a "real life" math blog post, this freebie gives you the photographs of the store at an apple orchard and the problem solving task of spending $20! There is a table to fill in with purchases and a page of challenge problems as well. Whether used in conjunction with other fall activities, as a simple and easy sub plan, or just for fun--this freebie asks students to solve a problem with multiple solutions!

NOW WITH DIGITAL SLIDES AS WELL!

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
  • need to send quality problems to students digitally

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

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 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.
Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. 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.
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.
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.
