Problem of the Week Bundle
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- Students read the problem and use the CUBES strategy to analyze it and pick out the important information. Students then use that information to solve.
Day 2: Partner up-Students check their answer and discuss their problem solving strategy with a partner.
Day 3: Explain-Students write a written explanation of how they solved the problem.
Day 4: Create-Students use the original problem as a model to create their own similar problem.
Day 5: Switch and Solve- Another student solves the problem created the day before.
This 49 page math problem solving product includes teacher notes with details of how we use this in our classrooms, 9 weeks of math word problems for the following topics: area, perimeter, geometry, and graphing,and answer keys!
***Included is a Common Core checklist-use the chart to see which standards are aligned with each problem!***
