Using a "Problem of the Day" in the middle grades is a fantastic way to spiral instruction and keep ideas, concepts and procedures fresh on students minds!
With problems corresponding to the Common Core Numbers and Operations -Base 10, this file contains 45 "real world" word problems for students in upper elementary and middle school in 2 forms:
1. A printable PDF version of the 45 word problems is useful if you would like to make copies for each individual student or if you would like to post the problems in the room or make them part of a math center.
2. You will also receive a PowerPoint presentation that contains one question per slide. This is fantastic tool if you want to project the word problems or use them in conjunction with a Smart Board or Promethean Board for warm-ups or even mini-lessons.
In addition to the one word problem per slide, you will also receive 45 corresponding smaller task cards (PowerPoint and PDF) that are perfect for individual or small group work.
