We use this in our classroom as daily work and the students' math problem solving skills always grow by leaps and bounds! On Monday the students are introduced to a math word problem and go through a different part of the problem solving process each day.

Day 1: Analyze and Solve: Using the CUBES strategy, students take a deep look into the problem and identify key information needed to solve the problem. They then use this information to actually solve the problem.

Day 2: Partner up: Students compare with another student how they solved the problem and analyze whether they used the same or different strategies to solve.

Day 3: Explain: On this day, students communicate in words  how they solved the problem step by step.

• Day 4: Create: Using the original problem as a framework, students create their own problem.

• Day 5: Switch and Solve: By exchanging problems with each other, students get an additional opportunity to practice the skill of the week.

This 49 page math problem solving product includes teacher notes with details of how we use this in our classrooms, 8 weeks of math word problems for the following topics: area, perimeter, geometry, graphing and answer keys!

Included is a Common Core checklist-use the chart to see which standards are aligned with each problem!
